Remembering Debbie Friedman (z”l)


You may find this a funny way to remember and pay tribute to Debbie Friedman (z”l.) That’s just the point. This picture is, for me, a reminder of one of the funniest interactions that Debbie and I ever had. If you were at Hava Nashira or CAJE in 2004, you might remember it as well. In times of great sadness, reliving a funny memory may be just the thing that’s needed. I’ll miss you, Debbie-as will thousands of others whose lives you have touched.

Her voice may now be silent, but her voice will never be silenced, as long as we share her songs and her teachings. May her memory be for a blessing.

  1. What a great way to teach Psalmody! One of the funniest moments at HN! Didn't she start that segment by singing Baa Baa Blacksheep?

  2. As much as I've loved her music, I loved her wicked sense of humor even more. Somewhere, I still have my MC Hammer pants from a chorale performance at a 90's CAJE at Hofstra;) Speaking of CAJE, do you where I could find a list of all the CAJE conference locales? The old memory just ain't what she used to be!
