On January 22, 2012, family members, friends, and fans of Debbie Friedman joined together to share and reflect on Debbie Friedman’s memory, and her legacy. The event was moving and personal—Debbie’s sister Cheryl Friedman said it perfectly, noting that we all were gathered together to share stories of “our” Debbie. The event was standing room only; over 550 people were gathered in person and over 150 more online joined together to share memories, share in learning, and lift our voices in song in Debbie’s memory. The event was sponsored by the Kalsman Institute for Judaism and Health and Temple Isaiah. If you missed the event, or would like to view the evening event again, you may now view it online at: http://templeisaiah.com/rsblog/debbie/.
Friends of Debbie Friedman gathered at our Murstein Syngagogue at HUC-JIR/Jerusalem to celebrate the extraordinary legacy of her music, tefillah, and torah on February 4, 2012. Click here for further information.
