Sharsheret plans barbecues this week

Sharsheret hosts its annual benefit — this year it’s a summer barbecue, “Coming Together” — on Monday, August 1, at 6:30 p.m., at Congregation Ahavath Torah in Englewood. This benefit is the first one Sharsheret has held in New Jersey since the pandemic began. It’s also planning another summer barbecue in Lawrence, on Long Island, on Wednesday, August 3.

Maya Bernstein will tell her story at the barbecue. She’s the founding co-director of Georgetown University’s Institute for Transformational Leadership’s Certificate in Facilitation and is on the faculty of the Masa Leadership Center in Jerusalem and Yeshivat Maharat in New York. Joy Goldsmith and Amanda Goldsmith Fein, a mother and daughter team, will be recognized as longtime Sharsheret volunteers. Oncologist Dr. Robert Alter of Englewood will lead the siyum service. A Sharsheret supporter, he leads men’s webinars for the organization.

Sharsheret, a national non-profit organization, improves the lives of Jewish women and families living with or at an increased genetic risk for breast or ovarian cancer. They work to save lives through personalized support and educational outreach.
