Sharsheret is a national organization of cancer survivors dedicated to addressing the unique concerns of young Jewish women facing breast cancer.
Sharsheret, Hebrew for "chain," was founded in 2001 by Rochelle Shoretz, a former Law Clerk to United States Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, who recognized the need for a breast cancer organization that would provide culturally sensitive support for Jewish women after her own diagnosis at age 28.
The organization has grown extensively over the years and has become globally recognized.
We love that both of our philanthropies are founded by sisters of AEPhi. It speaks to the sorority's sense of community and passion for helping others. We will always stand by our sisters and everything that the sisters of
Alpha Epsilon Phi support.
