Please join the Kol Emeth community for a panel discussion hosted by the BRCA Foundation. A BRCA mutation is a mutation in either of the BRCA1 and BRCA2 genes, which are tumor suppressor genes. One in 40 Ashkenazi Jews is a BRCA mutation carrier, compared to one in anywhere from 600-800 of the general population. What does this mean for Jewish families? Did you know men can also be carriers? Come learn about the BRCA genetic mutation – what it is, what it means and how we can support one another.
