Join hundreds of women from across the Greater Boston area for an evening of inspiration, fun and baking challah! This annual event is always a draw. As part of the Shabbat Project, local Jews will come together to bake challah and have the opportunity to get BRCA screening from a local provider.
For the first time ever, this year’s Shabbat Project will include “Pink” challah bakes across the U.S., in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, which takes place throughout the month of October.
Hundreds of women are expected to join the event in Boston, with Jewish breast cancer organization Sharsheret, along with Myriad Genetics, offering educational resources, as well as BRCA screening and testing before the event. Please bring your insurance card.
Established in 2013, this year’s Shabbat Project theme is “Stop doing. Start being,” which references the unique opportunity that Shabbat affords people to devote one day to the truly important things that might otherwise get lost in the maelstrom. This year’s Shabbat Project will be held in approximately 300 cities and towns in Israel, over 500 cities in the U.S., and a combined 1 million Jews in more than 1,400 cities in 98 countries worldwide celebrating Shabbat together.
“Over 250,000 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer this year in the U.S. We are thrilled to introduce the Pink Challah Bake to this Shabbat Project, allowing women from communities across the country to come together in Jewish unity and to bring greater awareness to the importance of regular screening,” said Nisa Felps, Pink Challah Bake coordinator.
