A Special Shabbat Service Remembering Debbie Friedman

(Thanks to Cantor Mark Stanton and Michelle Miller for the wordsmithing)

A Special Service for Debbie Friedman – Congregation Beth Emeth will have a special Shabbat service and Sermon-in-Song remembering Debbie Friedman, z”l, a pioneer in Jewish music who passed away last week. Debbie revolutionized worship within the Reform movement and many Conservative synagogues as well. Her version of the “Mi Shebeirach,” the healing prayer, is now sung at countless synagogues and Jewish gatherings. Participants will sing Debbie’s version of “Song at the Sea” and “Miriam’s Song” and learn more about her music at this service. Start time: 8 p.m. Congregation Beth Emeth is located at 300 W Lea Blvd., Wilmington, DE. For more information, call 302-764-2393. To hear a song by Debbie, go to her website at:
