“THE TORAH OF LEONARD COHEN”
Did you know Leonard Cohen was the grandson of two of Canada’s prominent rabbis? Join musician, poet, Torah scholar and Leonard Cohen devotee, Alicia Jo Rabins on a deep, joyfully thought-provoking Jewish journey through Cohen’s songs and poems. We will explore mystical themes of love, ecstatic worship and ritual in Cohen’s work, as well as the interplay of Jewish and Buddhist themes. All are welcome.

She is the creator and performer of Girls in Trouble, an indie-folk song cycle about the com- plicated lives of Biblical women and A Kaddish for Bernie Mado , a chamber-rock opera about the intersection of dance and spirituality.
