The Music of Debbie Friedman

Debbie was a friend and colleague of Ellen’s, a friendship that was nurtured during their years together as faculty at Hava Nashira, a song leading retreat held each year in Oconomowuc, Wi. Hava Nashira was pioneered by Debbie and Cantor Jeff Klepper. During this concert, Ellen will share songs that are part of Debbie’s legacy and are sung in worship services, religious schools, and preschools throughout the world. Ellen considers it a privilege and an honor to teach Debbie’s songs as a way of preserving the rich heritage that she left our people.
