Rabbi Eric Yoffie, President of the URJ

Debbie Friedman was an extraordinary treasure of our Movement, and one of its most influential voices.

Rabbi Eric YoffieTwenty-five years ago, North American Jews had forgotten how to sing. Debbie reminded us how to sing, she taught us how to sing.  She gave us the vehicles that enabled us to sing.  What happens in the synagogues of Reform Judaism today -- the voices of song -- are in large measure due to the insight, brilliance and influence of Debbie Friedman.
