Leonard Cohen on God–as the Jewish High Holidays Begin

Tonight, the Jewish High Holidays begin. Leonard Cohen wrote this about God: “Not knowing where to go, I go to you. Not knowing where to turn, I turn to you… I travel on a hair to you… I go through a pinhole of light. Blessed are you, who waits in the world.” (Book of Mercy, 1984).

Leonard Cohen book-review!

  Delighted to post Seth Rogovoy’s advance review of “From This Broken Hill I Sing to You.” Rogovoy is a music critic and author of “Bob Dylan: Prophet, Mystic, Poet.” He writes, “Drawing from the entirety of Cohen’s creative output, including his oft-overlooked novels, Marcia Pally takes Cohen seriously as a religious thinker. The listener – or reader, in this case – comes out the winner.” Available on Amazon. #LeonardCohenBrokenHillBook
