Take 5 minutes on Sunday, February 3 between 9:45 am - 1:00 pm and you can help save a life!


We invite all members of the community to come out to have a simple cheek swab test that can help save a life. If you are between 18 and 55 years old you are eligible to be tested. Tests will take place at Congregation Keneseth Israel at 2227 Chew Street, Allentown, PA 18104.


Shira Klein, a 35 year old wife and mother of three young children, has been battling Hodgkins Lymphoma for nearly 2 years. Chemotherapy and a stem cell transplant using her own stem cells yielded brief remissions, but Shira has relapsed and now needs a stem cell transplant from a donor. Her best chance at a match lies with people of similar ancestry and ethnic background.


A simple test can help save Shira's life or the life of another. Please take a few minutes to come in and be tested.


For more information please contact Congregation Keneseth Israel at 610-435-9074.
