October 23 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

Join us on Sunday, October 23, at 11:00 am in person at Beth El to discuss “Who by Fire: Leonard Cohen in the Sinai” by award-winning Canadian-Israeli journalist Matti Friedman.  During the Yom Kippur War, singer-songwriter Leonard Cohen impulsively travelled to Israel and sang for encamped soldiers across the Sinai Desert.  This is a wonderful (and short!) book about personal redemption, music in wartime, and Israeli history.
