November 6 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Join us via Zoom on Sunday, November 6, at 4:00 pm 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.  

Please note: this program will also be offered in-person at Congregation Beth El on Sunday, October 23, at 11:00 am. Click here to register for the in-person program.

Co-Sponsored by Beth El (Library, Sisterhood, Men’s Club, Am Yisrael Chai Committee) and Adas Israel (Library, Sisterhood). Questions? Contact Robin Jacobson at
