What's Happening with Hadassah?

Leading Breast Cancer Expert Rejects Universal BRCA Testing of Jewish Women

The recent recommendations based on a population-based study published in Proceedings of the National Academy Sciences urge all Jewish women of Ashkenazi descent to be tested for mutations on the BRCA 1 and 2 genes that are associated with a higher risk of breast cancer. Leading oncologist Prof. Tamar Peretz, Interim Director General of Hadassah Medical Organization and Director of Hadassah’s Sharett Institute of Oncology in Israel, rejects universal testing:

  • Israeli Hero Treated at Hadassah's Hospital on Mount Scopus
  • Israeli Prison Service Officer Ariel Twitto was on his way to pick up his children from nursery school camp after accompanying a prisoner to court when he and fellow officer, Elad Biton, heard someone shouting "Piguah!" (terror attack!).
