CHAI Circle annual retreat to focus on ‘Living with No Regrets’

Amy Hirshberg Lederman

Amy Hirshberg Lederman will speak on “Living with No Regrets” at the 12th Annual CHAI Circle Retreat on Sunday, Oct. 30, 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Canyon Ranch Health Resort, 8600 E. Rockcliff Road.

CHAI Circle (Cancer, Healing and Inspiration), a program of Jewish Family & Children’s Services, is a support group for women in the Jewish community with a history of cancer.

“It takes a great deal of wisdom and courage to live life to the fullest and to prioritize our relationships and values so that we feel deeply satisfied with our choices,” says Lederman, a Tucsonan who is an award-winning author and columnist, international speaker, Jewish educator and attorney.

“’Living with no regrets’ requires conscious and intentional decision-making but can be the key to feeling that we have lived our lives to the fullest,” she adds.

Lederman has published stories in the “Chicken Soup” series and other anthologies, and her book “One God, Many Paths; Finding Meaning and Inspiration in Jewish Teachings” won the 2009 Best Book Award from the Arizona Book Publishing Association in the religion and spirituality category. She has won two Simon Rockower Awards from the American Jewish Press Association for her articles in the Arizona Jewish Post.

The retreat will include a light breakfast and lunch.  There is no registration fee. RSVP by Oct. 16 to Andrea Siemens at 795-0300, ext. 2365 or asiemens@jfcstucson.org.
