Religious school students and teachers, rabbis, cantors, cantorial soloists and instrumentalists from five area synagogues will come together on Sunday, February 12 at 10:00 am, for a morning of singing and celebration in memory of the music and legacy of Debbie Friedman, z’’l. The concert, which will take place at The Towers, 18 Tower Lane, New Haven, is free and open to the public. Please bring your friends and your voices.
The participating congregations are Congregation Beth El-Keser Israel (New Haven), Congregation Mishkan Israel (Hamden), Temple Beth David (Cheshire), Temple Beth Tikvah (Madison), and Temple Emanuel of Greater New Haven (Orange).
In addition to several iconic songs by Friedman, who died in 2011, traditional tunes and songs by two generations of musicians who were influenced and inspired by her ability to bring a woman’s voice and perspective into late 20th century Jewish music, and to write accessible songs combining liturgy and social commentary, will be performed.
