Debbie Friedman, Z”L

Debbie Friedman, Z”L January 10, 2011

Debbie Friedman provided the Jewish soundtrack of most of my life.  She wrote hundreds of songs that I sang (and once upon a time even prayed with) for decades.  My children even learned the aleph-bet from her.

I first saw her in concert when I was a college student at the University of Texas.  I last saw her at my own JCC on one of her several engagements with us.

Last night she died after many years battling multiple sclerosis.  She will be missed.
