Debbie Friedman, the popular singer and songwriter who died Sunday, wrote the following for "I Am Jewish: Personal Reflections Inspired by the Last Words of Daniel Pearl," a collection of writings following the 2002 murder of Wall Street reporter Daniel Pearl. Dear Daniel, This is the first time I have had to think about the “why” of the words “I am a Jew.” I have never defined myself or my work before. I was born into a Jewish family, exposed to Jewish experiences and Jewish people. The concept “I am a Jew” never crossed my mind until I was asked to reflect on your words.
