Leonard Cohen’s Who by Fire

When people ask why can’t you separate Jewish/culture fom religion this song is a great example. Leonard Cohen, raised in an Orthodox home, whose works were heavily influenced by his upbringing ..even in this song where he is giving a sarcastic answer to the Unanetef Tokef portion of the Yom Kippur service…its heartbreakingly evident.

He said he wrote it as a personal prayer on Yom Kippur and you can’t get more Jewish than struggling with God.
