Last October, Rabbis Phyllis Sommer and Rebecca Schorr had a crazy idea: what if thirty-six Reform rabbis would shave their heads to bring attention to the fact that only 4% of United States federal funding for cancer research is earmarked for all childhood cancers as well as raise $180,000 for this essential research. Two weeks after this conversation, Phyllis and her husband, Michael, learned that their son, Sam, had relapsed with AML (acute myeloid leukemia) and that there were no other treatment options for him. And on December 14, surrounded by his loving parents, Sam Sommer died.

Since then, more than seventy rabbis have shaved their heads and we have raised more than $600,000. Fifty-three of those rabbis shaved together in Chicago on Tuesday, 1 April. You can watch the event here: http://vimeo.com/90722948

Who are we? We are a group of slightly-meshugene, but very devoted rabbis who are yearning to do something. We couldn't save Sammy; perhaps, though, we can save others like him. And spare other parents like Phyllis and Michael from the pain of telling their child that there is nothing that the doctors can do to save his life. We are donating all proceeds to the Thirty-Six Rabbis Shave for the Brave event benefiting St. Baldrick's!
