YAD Goes Pink!

This week YAD has been working hard to put the finishing touches on its Second Annual Pink Shabbat weekend. Building off last year's success, this year we are thrilled to be partnering with two amazing local partners. 

On Friday night, Moishe House San Diego and YAD’s Shabbat Connections Committee are proud to be part of the PINK Shabbat Weekend to support and bring awareness to the San Diego Jewish Community. Please visit our facebook event here: 

We especially welcome all those who have been personally impacted by breast and ovarian cancer.

All ages and affiliations are encouraged to attend!

Dress Code: Pink!
Potluck item will be assigned after you register
Optional donation of $5 to Sharsheret (

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

On Sunday morning YAD and Jewish Family Serivce’s Breast Cancer case management program will be joining forces to participant in the Susan G Komen Race for the Cure. Why do we race? Of every dollar raised by the Race, 75 cents stays right here in San Diego to fund programs like our Breast Cancer Case Management program. Komen grants funding to many different San Diego agencies who provide a wide range of services from free diagnostic mammograms, biopsies, and ultrasounds to transportation, financial aid and social support. Next to the U.S. government, Susan G. Komen for the Cure is the largest funder of breast cancer research in the world.
