Breast cancer affects all aspects of a woman’s life, including physical, emotional and spiritual. Mikvah attendants can greatly enhance the mikvah experience for these women, during a very difficult time, by increasing their level of understanding and preparedness. Sharsheret offers a free seminar for mikvah attendants to educate them about the issues that impact Jewish women facing breast cancer.
Some of the issues addressed during the seminar include:
- Body Image
- Side Effects of Cancer Treatments
- Privacy Concerns
- The Marital Relationship
- The Healing Experience of the Mikvah
- How Mikvah Attendants Can Help
Sharsheret can also provide culturally sensitive educational materials to be available at the mikvah for women.
