This February 23rd would have been her 70th birthday. 92Y with the help of some of Debbie Friedman’s closest colleagues and friends will come together to host a night of conversation about Debbie’s life, music, and legacy. Mandy Patinkin now joins the line-up as a special guest, discussing his close friendship with Debbie, who helped his son with bar mitzvah prep and served as cantor at the service.

The celebration also includes Debbie’s sister Cheryl Friedman, Rabbi Peter Rubinstein, Rabbi Dan Freelander and Cantor Jeff Klepper, Merri and Rabbi Ramie Arian, Douglas Mishkin, Josh Nelson, Julie Silver, Elana Arian, and Peri Smilow, and the Zamir Choral Foundation.
