"Magnified, sanctified ...." (in Aramaic: Yitgadal v’yitkadash) are part of the lyrics of You Want it Darker, the album released by Leonard Cohen in 2016. Cohen knew his death was near and included his own Kadish in the album's title song and invited a cantor and a synagogue choir to sing in it. Enjoy this and many more stories in "Rhythm and Jews", the five lectures course that explore two centuries of Jews' contributions to popular music, that will start next week, on Thursday November 5th. It includes jazz, rock, pop, Broadway musicals, etc.. It's part of the wide selection of online courses and lectures offered by Melton & More.
