Israeli singer-songwriter Bat ella befriended the iconic American Jewish songwriter and concert artist Debbie Friedman in the mid-1990's and witnessed the tremendous impact her music had on Jewish culture and spirituality throughout America. She attended her first concert at Carnegie Hall, where nearly 3000 exuberant fans joined in many of the songs and filled the aisles in celebratory dance as Debbie turned the concert into a Jewish revival. Bat ella sang with Debbie and upon returning to Israel, became committed to popularizing Debbie Friedman's songs in the Jewish State. In 2015 she released "L'chi Lach," an album of Debbie Friedman's greatest hits translated to Hebrew, and has been touring Israel introducing this repertoire to adoring, appreciative audiences, infusing the Jewish culture of Israel with this American cultural legacy.
“Bat ella gives us another voice to sing, pray, celebrate, mourn, and rejoice!” - Rabbi Naamah Kelman-Ezrachi, Dean of the Hebrew Union College of Jerusalem
