What’s Jewish About Breast Cancer?
A breast cancer diagnosis goes beyond the woman. It affects her husband, children, parents, siblings and friends. Breast cancer is a Jewish communal issue. Join us for a panel discussion featuring experts addressing the medical, cultural, halachic, and emotional impact of a breast cancer diagnosis and will shed light on how we, as a community, and Sharsheret can help those affected by breast cancer. The panel is open to both men and women, with or without a history of breast cancer.
