In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, we're teaming up with Sharsheret to bring you NEXT/ Sharsheret Pink Shabbat®.
Why Pink Shabbat?
1 in 40 Jewish men and women of Ashkenazi descent are at 10x greater risk for carrying a breast cancer gene mutation that can lead to breast and ovarian cancer, and possibly skin, colon, pancreatic, and prostate cancers, too. Pink Shabbat is a time to spread awareness, share resources, and most importantly, generate hope.
If you know someone facing cancer, Pink Shabbat is a way to come together and find out how you can help. Even if you don't know someone personally, Pink Shabbat a great reason to get your friends together and find out how to take your health into your own hands.
