The Rebbe of Montreal: Jewish Themes in the Songs of Leonard Cohen

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Cohen was the grandson of a Rosh Yeshiva in Kovno and the grandson of the founder of the Shaar Shamayim Synagogue in Montreal. His music is full of stories from Tanah, prayer, and Jewish history. Even though Cohen claimed that his music is universal and not Jewish, he left it for us to discover the Jewish side of his art. If you are a fan of Cohen’s deep voice and text study, join me in discovering the Jewish themes in Cohen’s songs.
