Shalom! My name is Jessica Goldberg. I am a fourth-year Rabbinical student at Hebrew College in Newton, and I am joining Synagogue Council this year as a Rabbinic intern. Here's a short piece of Torah I'd like to offer by way of introduction...
We are grateful for Paul Kelly's 17 years of dedicated service to Synagogue Council and to the community at large. Words cannot capture his value. We wish him well in all of his future endeavors.
One Step Ahead of Cancer
Ashkenazi Jews have a one-in-forty chance of inheriting a BRCA gene mutation that puts them at high risk of developing cancer that can be prevented or detected early.
Synagogue Council is proud to team up with two initiatives dedicated to raising awareness and supporting genetic testing and cancer research.
Oneinforty educates about about the Jewish-cancer connection and what can be done to detect and prevent cancer early.
Look for information about theBRCA Founder Outreach (BFOR) Studycoming to Boston! BFOR will offer free genetic testing forBRCA genetic mutations to about 1,000 Massachusetts residents of Ashkenazi descent over the age of 25.
