Deena Ross and Moishe Siebzener, the food service professionals behind Deena's Dishes and Creative Kosher Catering, are raising money for breast cancer awareness. For each challah sold during select weeks in October the caterers are donating $1 to Sharsheret, an organization that provides Jewish women and families with programs and resources regarding breast cancer and ovarian cancer.
Supporting breast cancer awareness was driven by a personal connection to the disease, Ross said.
“Unfortunately I have friends who have passed away from breast cancer, and I have a couple of friends who have breast cancer,” she said. “It’s been an impactful thing in my life.”
October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. The special challahs are available in pink or marble pink and will be served in pink boxes with pink ribbons. PJC
