Lynda Fishman

Jewish Child and Family Service Launches Inspiring Speaker Series

October 5, 2014


JCFS has established a new speaker series called "Can We Talk About...." As part of the important mandate of JCFS in supporting individuals and families who are dealing with challenging issues in their lives, JCFS is showcasing qualified and dynamic speakers on a variety of thought provoking social issues. 



For its inaugural program, JCFS is presenting: "Can We Talk About… Grief" featuring acclaimed author Lynda Fishman. Lynda will share her story on loss, grief and moving forward; of tragedy, triumph and tenacity. In 1970, when she was just 13-years-old, Lynda Fishman’s life was altered forever when her mother and two sisters were killed in an airplane crash. Fishman recounts this terrible time and the four decades since in her moving book Repairing Rainbows: A True Story of Family, Tragedy and Choices. She could have fallen into despair, but instead, as she writes in her novel, “I chose life.”


Fishman has dedicated her life to learning, growing and making a difference. She was determined to find meaning and purpose in her life - to live a life that matters.


Lynda is a trained clinical Social Worker, a motivational speaker and facilitator. Lynda will be sharing her moving story on Thursday, October 23, 2014 at 7:30 p.m. at the Shaarey Zedek Synagogue, 561 Wellington Crescent. Everyone is welcome to attend this inspiring evening. 


Tickets are priced at $20.00 for adults and $10.00 for students. They are available through Jewish Child and Family Service 204-477-7430 [email protected].
