Join us for an event to mark the launch of a new book which looks deeply into the imagination of one of the greatest lyricists of our time.
In Leonard Cohen: The Mystical Roots of Genius, author Harry Freedman goes beyond traditional biography to provide an insight into the spiritual traditions behind Cohen’s powerful lyrics. Here, in conversation with Rabbi Zahavit Shalev, they will share their insight into the artists’ techniques for mining Jewish wisdom and the resonating impact this work continues to have.
