Dance Me to the End of Love: Celebrating Prophet and Poet Leonard Cohen

With Rabbi Marc Soloway and Kathryn Bernheimer

Join us for an evening of music and conversation focused on the extraordinary Canadian singer-songwriter whose longevity and impact are rivaled only by Bob Dylan. A serious poet before he turned to the art of fusing provocative lyrics with poignant melodies, Cohen has mined Judaism to produce the most overtly Jewish songs created by any popular artist: “Who By Fire” and “Hallelujah” chief among them. Rabbi Marc Soloway will conduct a conversation analyzing several of these songs and examining their Jewish context and their relationship to Jewish values and tradition. Kathryn Bernheimer will share biographical information about the 81-year old legend – a singer, songwriter, musician, painter, poet, novelist, and ordained Buddhist monk – whose haunting work has explored religion, politics, isolation, sexuality, romance, remorse, and personal freedom.
