The Life and Legacy of Debbie Friedman

The Life and Legacy of Debbie Friedman

The official site of the life and legacy of Debbie Friedman (1951 – 2011). This site is dedicated to Debbie's beloved Jewish music, accomplished career, and her personal impact on so many who cherished her.

We are pleased to announce the publication
of the most comprehensive and definitive anthology ever
of Debbie Friedman's music. 

SING UNTO GOD: THE DEBBIE FRIEDMAN ANTHOLOGY is a nearly 500-page master collection of Debbie's entire music catalog. It features lay-flat binding to make music stand or bimah usage easier.

She is regarded as a prophet of our times;
and as the greatest Jewish singer-songwriter in history.

However you describe her life and legacy, Debbie Friedman ( z''l ) (1951 - 2011) gave us classic and timeless music, filled with peaceful and universal messages, that will forever be sung.

SING UNTO GOD: THE DEBBIE FRIEDMAN ANTHOLOGY is a tribute to her life and music, featuring every song she wrote and recorded (plus more than 30 songs previously unavailable) and insight into her incredible life.

SING UNTO GOD: THE DEBBIE FRIEDMAN ANTHOLOGY was published by the Friedman family along with the URJ. Edited by Joe Eglash with Cheryl Friedman, it features beautifully-engraved music (much of Debbie's catalog has never been transcribed to sheet music), her life story, tributes by respected peers and colleagues of Debbie, various handy indexes of her music, and much more.

The Friedman family is happy to share with you these unique recordings of Debbie writing or teaching some of the previously unpublished songs included in Sing Unto God. The demo recordings above have heretofore only been heard by Debbie's family. (Thanks to Jules Frankel for the Hava Nashira recordings.)
