Sunday Night at the Cafe: Hallelujah

Defying a ban by progressive artists against Israel, legendary Leonard Cohen took the stage in Tel Aviv last Thursday just before Yom Kippur to an audience of 50,000. This performance of his signature song, penned by his own hand, is spell-binding. There are some things that music can do that all the prose in the world cannot even touch.

Tip of the tinfoil to the steadfast RWB. You hit out of the park again, my friend.

That did it. I'm going to go buy a bunch of Cohen's albums.

LOVE Leonard Cohen, love that song, and love the Jewish people. God bless them on these High Holy Days.
