In this multimedia program including music, images, video, and close textual comparisons, Seth Rogovoy explores the deep and profound influence of the Jewish background and scriptural roots of the late Leonard Cohen’s life and work. With reference to Cohen’s lyrics, poetry, and interviews, we will see how the legendary rock poet’s familiarity with Torah, Talmud, and Kabbalah infused his creative output with a deep and abiding spirituality.
