As part of Breast Cancer Awareness Month in October, Temple Israel will be having a special Shabbat service, "Sisterhood & Sharsheret: Empowering Jewish Women," on Saturday, Oct. 6, at 9:30 a.m. in the Rein Sanctuary.

According to its mission statement, "Sharsheret is a national not-for-profit organization supporting young Jewish women and their families facing breast cancer. Our mission is to offer a community of support to women, of all Jewish backgrounds, diagnosed with breast cancer or at increased genetic risk, by fostering culturally-relevant individualized connections with networks of peers, health professionals, and related resources."

The special service will feature guest speaker and survivor Geanne Share. Temple Israel's Sisterhood will be donating proceeds to Sharsheret from the sales of an original "Pink Shabbat" T-shirt, which can be purchased for $10 online at http://www.tiflorida.org/pink-shabbat-t-shirts/ or by calling 407-647-3055. 

Shirts can be picked up at the Temple Israel office, 50 S. Moss Road in Winter Springs, from Wednesday, Oct. 3 to Friday, Oct. 5, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Temple Israel hopes the greater community will come together for this special Shabbat and show support by wearing the shirts at the service. More information on Sharsheret is available at http://www.sharsheret.org.
