Rabbi Shoshana Boyd Gelfand - wisdom of leonard cohen

something understood - bbc radio 4.

Rabbi Shoshana Boyd Gelfand argues that we are all fragile beings and explores the lessons we can learn from that fragility.

...Shoshana draws upon the wisdom of Leonard Cohen, whose Anthem is a celebration of fragility and imperfection. The song's central line "there is a crack in everything, that's how the light gets in" appears to channel the Jewish mysticism of Kabbalah that asserts that fragility is built into the fabric of the universe.

Presenter: Shoshana Boyd Gelfand

Producer: Max O'Brien

A TBI production for BBC Radio 4.
