That’s How The Light Gets In: A Musical Tribute to Leonard Cohen

November 12, 2023 @ 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm

Join us for an afternoon of music and connection in honor of Leonard Cohen’s 7th yahrzeit.

Nobel laureate and modern-day prophet Leonard Cohen’s timeless body of work as a songwriter, performer, and poet spans more than 50 years and explores religion, politics, isolation, love, and mortality. His creations delved fearlessly into the essence of human existence, often doing so through the lens of Jewish history, texts, and tradition.

As we commemorate his 7th yahrzeit, join guitarist Dan Nadel, vocalist Shira Averbuch, and drummer Satoshi Takeishi for a tribute celebrating Cohen’s life and music. After the concert, we’ll gather for wine and light snacks.

Where: The concert will take place in the Experiential Theater at The Masters School 49 Clinton Ave. Dobbs Ferry NY. The theater is inside the Fonseca Center and is handicap accessible. Plenty of parking is on site.

When: The show runs from 3-4:15 and will be immediately followed by a casual reception in the Sharon Room.

Who: This event is organized by a consortium of Rivertowns synagogues including Temple Beth Abraham, Temple Beth Shalom, Pleasantville Community Synagogue, Woodlands Community Temple, and Greenburgh Hebrew Center, and generously sponsored by UJA-Federation of NY. It is geared towards adults 55+ but all are welcome!
