ORANGE — The Temple Emanuel Band, Children’s Choir and Hebrew School invite you to join them for a morning of singing and celebration in memory of the music and legacy of Debbie Friedman, Sunday, Jan. 12, at 10:30 a.m., at Temple Emanuel of Greater New Haven, 150 Derby Ave. This year, we welcome the participation of the Ezra Academy Choir. The event is free and open to the public. Please bring your friends and your voices.

In addition to several iconic songs by Friedman, who died in 2011, songs by two generations of musicians who were influenced and inspired by her ability to bring a woman’s voice and perspective into late 20th century Jewish music, and to write accessible songs combining liturgy and social commentary, will be performed.

Temple Emanuel of Greater New Haven is a diverse, caring and intellectually vibrant community of approximately 140 households. As a small congregation, we have the opportunity to know one another and have meaningful input into how our synagogue operates. Our membership comes from many towns in Greater New Haven and the Naugatuck Valley.
