Whenever you see the words "altar" and "sacrifice" and "father" in any of Cohen's work, remember the meaning of his name in Hebrew -- "priest". According to the Encyclopedia of Religions, priests (in all religions) have "two identifying factors. The priest, first, perfoms a sacrificial ritual, usual...

No, he is French, born and raised in Paris. It's his parents who were born in Armenia.

That song, Les Bons Moments -- I find the English version is way, WAY better than the French. For once something is gained in translation.

On holiday, Linda? Ha! I wish! No, I've been gone because I got a job. But I've missed you guys, and I'm coming back! (Will try to keep my job too.) The workings of this forum are absolutely fascinating to me. The skirmishes, the flirtings, the alliances, the shouts in the dark, I find it incredibly...

On a dark night, alone in the winter wilderness, one could even imagine Nouria scrambling through the under-brush trying to escape her tormentors.
And to think it's the end of January and I still haven't showed up at the gym.

Lizzytish, I hope you don't mind if I answer Insanitor's question ("why do you keep calling Anne Nouria") even though it wasn't addressed to me. Lizzytysh called me Nouria because when I first registered my real name (Anne) was already taken, so I chose Nouria instead. Then I realized after a few da...

I thought they wore shtreimels. Maybe over the yamaha? Anyway I never said he was a chasid, just, say, High Conservative. Enough to find some use for a hat, a beard, a hyphen.

OK, this is where I'm going with this hyphen thing. Please bear with me. 1) Poets are not casual with words. Jews are not casual with the name of God (traditionally). Cohen not only changed the spelling in his current work, but went so far as to alter it in his previous work. It's a very radical and...

As I already said, Leonard Cohen didn't always use the hyphenated version. I don't know exactly, when he changed his spelling, but maybe Tom Sakic knows. Well, Tom, do you know? Obviously LC feels strongly about this. In Stranger Music he went back and changed all instances of "God" to "G-d", even ...

Tchocolatl, I think I've annoyed you. I'm sorry. My tone was all wrong. I do not know the answers to my questions. I don't have any orthodox friends that I could ask. I speak Hebrew but I'm not Jewish (long story). My questions are in earnest. As for my habits, nothing could make me happier than to ...
