Tribute to Leonard Cohen
This Spring, JArts has teamed up with the Contemporary Jewish Museum in San Francisco to pay homage to Leonard Cohen and Hallelujah, an artist and a song that have changed the way we understand spirituality. Hallelujah has been translated into 80 languages and is one of the most covered songs in modern history. And yet, few understand the deep spiritual roots. An online symposium will dig into Cohen and spirituality, a conversation that crosses his Jewish and Buddhist beliefs. Join us for conversations with top American clergy and musicians as we explore Cohen’s spirituality.
Stay tuned for more details!
