Breast Cancer Awareness – Temple B’nai Sholom Sisterhood
The Temple B’nai Sholom Sisterhood is very proud to have designed a pin signifying the fight against breast cancer for all women and men. One in nine women will confront this enemy. We hope to contribute to their victory with the sale of this pin. The profits are donated to local initiatives as well as international breast cancer awareness and women’s health initiatives sponsored by the Women of Reform Judaism (WRJ).
The L’Chaim pin is an eternal circle surrounding a Chai signifying “Life” in Hebrew upon which rests the breast cancer “pink ribbon”. The design idea for the pin was created by B.B. Anders and Sharon Kunitz, who then gave the project life.

Each year more than 180,000 women in this country learn they have breast cancer. While doctors and researchers continue to learn more about the causes and prevention of this devastating disease, there are things women can do now. Regular self-examinations and mammograms are the most effective tools we have for early breast cancer detection and annual pap smears for cervical cancer detection. Recent studies also suggest that a healthy, low-fat diet and regular exercise may even decrease the risk of breast cancer.
Jewish commitments to life and health impel us to work to lower the risk of breast cancer in OUR lives today.
Proceeds from the purchase of this pin will help to promote breast cancer awareness and to further scientific research which may eliminate the risk of breast cancer in our DAUGHTERS tomorrow.
“The members of Temple B’nai Sholom Sisterhood would like to thank you for your support of our L’Chaim pin promoting our goal of finding a cure for breast cancer.
We have, with your help and support, been able to distribute 700+ pins to caring individuals throughout the United States. As promised, 100% of the proceeds from these pins has been donated to breast cancer research and awareness, early detection and women’s health initiatives. We wish you all continued good health and happiness for the future.
Thank you for sharing these pins with your friends and loved ones and please, wear them with pride.
