Sharsheret Pink and Teal Shabbat

Pink and Teal Shabbat is designed to educate women and men about the increased risk of hereditary breast and ovarian cancer among Jewish families, the measures they can take to protect their health, the impact of breast and ovarian cancer on the Jewish community and Sharsheret’s resources.

Organize a Pink and Teal Shabbat and raise breast and ovarian cancer awareness. Contact us to get started. We will work closely with you to create meaningful Shabbat programming. See our calendar of events to find a Pink and Teal Shabbat program near you.
