Debbie Friedman: She Taught Jews to Sing Again

URL: http://www.jewishjournal.com/bloggish/item/debbie_friedman_she_taught_jews_to_sing_again_20110109

Years ago, as I was making my way back into Judaism after a lapse, I would go to synagogue on Shabbat and find myself waiting especially for certain moments in the services. I later came to know that those special moments all were linked to haunting tunes written by Debbie Friedman. Her version of the Mi Shebearach prayer, her "Shalom Rav" and once yearly especially: "L'chi La," -- "And you Shall be a Blessing."
