Just stumbled across news of Judy's death and wanted to express my gratitude for her songs and the love that radiates through them. I had always hoped to hear her sing live on the East Coast. My husband remembered meeting and hearing her in the sixties in Worcester. Walking on the brilliant snowy Atlantic beach this morning, walked a spiral trail for the voices and melodies that coninue-- . zikhrona l'vrakha.

Judy was a magnificent singer and a compassionate person. I met her in 1987 and interviewed her in 1989. She honored the songs taught to her by the women at Mt.Zion and rendered them in a way that represented not only Sephardic Jews but an entire people. She was a true artist in every sense of the world and her art was not ego driven but done out of sharing and love.

Judy:

A year ago today we celebrated your life. A year later the joy you brought has not left anyone.

We were shocked to learn of Judy's passing. I had the honor to present Judy many times in concerts in the San Francisco Jewish community and always loved her music and devotion to preserving this music and honoring the tradition bearers. We heard her perform in Atlanta only a few years ago and realized that her artistry had reached the peak of perfection. She was such a lovely soul; we mourn and will miss her. The singer has passed but the songs live on. May her memory be for a blessing always.

Judy, we were sort of thrown together to sing (or some would say, screech) Beethoven and first talked when you hummed, in rehearsal, a rock tune few knew, but I did, and that began a 35 year friendship based on song and enriched by your warmth, your intense interest in others, your unique talent and searching intelligence, and your kindness.

I will always remember you, keeping in mind a favorite poem, probably by Mary Frye and written for a friend:

-------
Do not stand at my grave and weep
I am not there; I do not sleep.

I am a thousand winds that blow,
I am the diamond glints on snow,
I am the sunlight on ripened grain,
I am the Gentle autumn rain.

When you awaken in the mornings hush,
I am the swift uplifting rush
of quiet birds in circled flight.

I am the soft stars that shine at night.

Do not stand at my grave and cry,
I am not there, I did not die.

Although I am Judy's cousin I had only met her on a few occasions. Reading all these thoughts and stories about her makes me feel like I have a connection I did not have before.Thanks for your insightful and intimate details of my wonderful cousin

The Society for Crypto-Judaic Studies has named the concert by a musical performer that takes place at our annual conferences after Judy. So the first annual Judy Frankel Memorial Concert will take place on August 3 at our annual conference in Phoenix. Judy performed many times at our conferences through the years and we will miss her warm and talented presence among us.
The Spring 2009 issue of our publication, HaLapid, carried a tribute to Judy. You can read it on our website after May 18:
