Fourth Chanuka candle for Leonard Cohen

A tribute to my beloved composer/poet/singer/ rabbi Leonard Cohen

The first Chanuka on earth without him…i sang this song for the first time with Eileen the Harp lady on Ben Yehuda street in Jerusalem, and the last i had heard it performed by a street musician in Germany was the ominous day of the attack in Berlin , and all i recall of that day the way people stopped and stood full of awe to the words and indeed “Hallelujah” means “praise the lord”, and no one had  praised the lord  quite like  Leoard Cohen ..this is only one version of which i think there are two or three..

Thank you !
