Last night I watched a tribute to Leonard here in Australia on ABC2 TV with the I'm Your Man documentary.
It features artists in the Came So Far For Beauty concert at the Sydney Opera House in 2005 and LC and other artists at the Slipper Room, New York City.

I have this DVD and have watched it many times but saw it in a different light last night....

Tributes and some info from Israel: (Sorry, but some of the info/articles will be in Hebrew, I will not be able to translate all)

Netanya announces it's City Music Hall (Conservatorium) will be named after Leonard Cohen.
http://www.netanyanet.co.il/%D7%97%D7%9 ... 7%94%D7%9F

***Yesterday I found out there is a street named Leonard Cohen Street in Beer Sheva (Beersheba) ..not alot of information on the internet so I can't link it to our specific Cohen , but if I will be able to confirm the connection I will write more about it , there seems to be a very interesting story around it.

Words from Ruvi Rivlin , President https://www.facebook.com/ReuvenRivlin/? ... NE&fref=nf
זה לא יהיה אותו הדבר בלעדיו, כך נוהגים לומר אחרי מות.
הבוקר הסתכלנו אחד על השנייה וחשבנו את אותן המחשבות:
Dance me to the end of love, היה פסקול לרגעים רבים בחיינו כזוג, כמשפחה. העניק לנו, כמו שירים רבים אחרים שלו, רוח ועומקים של רגש בחיי השגרה.
כמה עצוב להפרד מהאיש שקולו ופניו ליוו אותנו שנים רבות מספור.
יוצר ענק ולב פתוח לכל אדם, שגם את מדינת ישראל ידע ללוות בשדות קרב ובשנים של צמיחה.
הוא מעולם לא חשב שעליו להחליף את השם היהודי הברור, כהן, כדי לזכות בהכרה מאף אחד.
האיש שידע בשורה אחת במחברתו, להנהיג ולעצב את עולמו של אדם יותר מכל נאום שאי פעם נכתב.
ליאונרד כהן ימשיך לרקוד לצידנו עד קצה האהבה.
תודה לך, על מה שהשארת עבורנו.
נחמה ורובי.

Words from B. Netanyahu, Prime Minister https://www.facebook.com/Netanyahu/?fref=ts
לאונרד כהן היה יוצר ענק, אמן מוכשר ויהודי חם שאהב את עם ישראל ומדינת ישראל. לא אשכח איך הגיע לכאן במלחמת יום הכיפורים כדי לשיר לחיילי צה״ל, מתוך תחושה עמוקה של שותפות. קולו הנוגע ימשיך ללוות אותנו, כמו גם תפילתו ״הללויה״. יהי זכרו ברוך.
Leonard Cohen was a great creator, a talented artist, and a warm Jew, who loved the people of Israel and the state of Israel. I will not forget how he came to Israel during the Yom Kippur War in order to sing to IDF soldiers, out of a deep feeling of partnership. His touching voice will continue to accompany us, like his prayer "Hallelujah". May his memory be a blessing.
