The late Leonard Cohen was the quintessential Jewish composer of our time – perhaps even more than Bob Dylan.  He was not only an entertainer, song writher, poet, but a man with his own Torah.  Through film, guitar, and voice, Rabbi Ron Isaacs will present several of Cohen’s songs with religious themes and illustrate their connection to both liturgical and biblical texts.

Free to All
