Kumsitz: Commemorate Debbie Friedman's Legacy on the Occasion of Her 10th Yahrzeit

Join us to celebrate Debbie with an evening of song and memory.

As we have done for the past nine years, we will gather to raise our voices, rejoicing in the incredible canon of Jewish music that Debbie lovingly created.

This year, of course, our gathering will be virtual, which -- although challenging in many ways -- offers us the unique opportunity to widen our tent as we welcome friends from across the country and around the world. Join us as we sing some of the beloved music that shaped our Jewish souls, our collective Jewish identity, and in so doing continue to be inspired and renewed by Debbie's spirit!

Joining us for this special evening will be many of Debbie's musician buddies, with whom she shared this music and much more:


Cantor Jill Abramson  |  Ellen Allard  |  Elana Arian  |  Merri Lovinger Arian  |  Noah Aronson  |  Ivan Barenboim  |  Bat Ella Birnbaum  |  Rabbi Ken Chasen  |  Michelle Citrin  |  Cantor Richard Cohn  |  Cantor Ellen Dreskin  |  Rabbi Daniel Freelander  |  Alan Goodis  |  Cantor Zoe Jacobs  |  Rabbi Noam Katz  |  Cantor Jeff Klepper  |  Shira Kline  |  Benny Koonyevsky  |  Cantor Jack Mendelson  |  Josh Nelson  |  Dan Nichols  |  Joyce Rosenzweig  |  Cantor Benjie Ellen Schiller  |  Cantor Leon Sher  |  Julie Silver  |  Peri Smilow  |  Craig Taubman  |  Cantor Rosalie Will   |  and other special guests
