Pink Shabbat

October 28 2023, 9:30 AM - 12:00 PM

Join BZBI for our Pink Shabbat, a morning service in honor of breast cancer awareness month. We will welcome Emily Schaeffer Bakaj to share her experience. 

Her story begins with her mother passing away from breast cancer when she was in her early twenties. Helping her through her journey and then living on her own, changed her as a person to be kinder, stronger, more giving, and open. Support groups, peer support, speaking engagements for Sharsheret and being a contributing member of the Fox Chase Cancer Center’s Patient & Faculty Advisory Council (“PFAC”) for six years, gives her a chance to make a difference.

In her day to day, she is the Facility Manager for the US Region for a global engineering consulting firm. She has been married for 29 years to a wonderful man, Myron, and without his support and love, and the support of friends, family, and Fox Chase Cancer Center, she says she would not be where she is today.

We are encouraging everyone to wear pink to this service to show their support of breast cancer awareness. Our Kiddush will feature pink treats in honor of this special month.
