Jerusalem - In conjunction with Breast Cancer Awareness Month, a first of its kind campaign has been launched in cities across Israel by an Organization calling itself ‘U’Bizchutan’ aimed at raising awareness among Haredi women on early detection of the potentially deadly disease.

YNETNEWS.com (http://bit.ly/1Q37YEe) reports that reps for U’Bizchutan say posters promoting awareness will be placed in cities with large ultra-Orthodox sectors, including Jerusalem, Beitar Illit, Elad, Bnei Brak and Beit Shemesh.

Data provided by the Israeli Cancer Association reveals that more Haredi women succumb to breast cancer due to late detection than other Israeli women, due in large part to an unwillingness to discuss the topic because it is considered “immodest.”

U’Bizchutan is an Israeli political party formed in early 2015 by social activist Ruth Colian. It is the first political party in Israel focused on Orthodox Jewish women.

Colian said her group has taken it upon themselves to advance the awareness issue, but will be posting the signs at night so as to avoid potential confrontations within the Haredi sectors.

Headline is misleading,

The campaign is for the ultra orthodox, not orthodox.

Kok hakovod to this group for taking on a critical mission. All too often, Chareidi groups are so constrained by absurd chumrahs and fears, even using the word "breast" is considered untzniusdik and pritzus and various indirect terms muddle the message.

My OB-GYN tells me the hassidim don't get breast exams because the Rabbi won't permit it. After the women finish giving birth, they never come back for annual exams. What a shanda in New Square.

Can anyone tell me the difference between ultra-orthodox, Chareidi, Hassidic, and Orthodox?

We Jews have so many categories, each one thinking that only they represent authentic Judaism.

The Jew Haters make it very simple.....to them a Jew is a Jew.

I cannot believe any rational Rebbe would tell the women in his chassidus not to get breast exams because it mamash makes such a rav an accomplice to murder....if the Skver Rebbe did issue such a psak, the women in his own family are more likely to be the victims of such a mindless prohibition
