Jewish? Thinking about starting or growing your family?

Did you know one of every 40 Jewish men and women of Ashkenazi ancestry carries the BRCA genetic mutation, which leads to an increased lifetime risk of developing breast, ovarian, pancreatic, prostate and other cancers?

Yodeah, a local grassroots nonprofit promoting breast cancer awareness and prevention is on a mission to educate the Jewish community about the risk of carrying the BRCA gene and other hereditary cancer mutations. Learn about the BRCA positive gene mutation and its impact on family planning during a Zoom webinar presented by Yodeah on Monday, March 27 at 7:30 p.m. Panelists will include two couples who learned they were BRCA-positive and took steps with respect to family planning, as well as Yodeah founder Dr. Elizabeth Etkin-Kramer and in vitro fertilization specialist Dr. Vanessa Weitzman. The volunteer organization, which is supported in part by a Federation Women’s Impact Initiative Grant, also facilitates on-site, low-cost saliva testing to identify likely carriers.

World Bipolar Day Daniel Bergner The Mind and the Moon

Called by the NYT Book Review “A profound and powerful work of essential reporting," Bergner recounts his brother’s journey from his bipolar diagnosis along with others’ gripping, illuminating stories. Bergner beautifully explores how to seek a deeper engagement with ourselves and one another—and how to find a better path toward caring for our minds.

The book is about vulnerability and personal dignity, the terrifying choices confronted by families and patients, and the prospect of fascinating new theories of treatment from pioneering labs.

Women in the Holocaust: A Feminist History with Dr. Zoe Waxman
Date: Monday, March 20, 2023

Throughout the Holocaust, the political and social order of oppression, hierarchy, and suppression of Jewish women was apparent.
