The Holy and the Profane: A Rabbi and A Bishop Remember Leonard Cohen One Year On.
You are invited to join Rabbi Jeremy Parnes and Archbishop Donald Bolen for a discussion of the songs of the late Leonard Cohen. All are welcome to this free evening of dialogue on Thursday, October 26th, 7pm at Beth Jacob Synagogue, 4715 McTavish Street, Regina.
Leonard Cohen (1934-2016) was a Canadian singer, songwriter, musician, poet, and novelist. His work explored religion, politics, isolation, sexuality, and personal relationships. An observant Jew, Cohen was strongly influenced by Christian and Buddhist themes, which he brought into his work. About his work, he said: "At our best, we inhabit a biblical landscape, and this is where we should situate ourselves without apology."
