DOROT Programs


This multimedia program presented by author Seth Rogovoy incorporates still images, video, and close lyrical analysis to explore the deep and profound influence of Leonard Cohen’s Jewish background and scriptural roots in his life and work. Join DOROT to understand how the legendary rock poet’s familiarity with Torah, Talmud, and Kabbalah worked its way into his songs and public utterances. Together participants will reflect on and discuss how Cohen can best be seen and appreciated as a Jewish artist.
