Leonard Cohen

Jewish Canadian singer joins Israeli ambassador in Croatia for Shabbat eve celebration, lauds Israel culture week held in Istria peninsula

The Israeli Embassy in Croatia could not think of a more festive opening for its Israel Summer Magic events – A week of Israel

Cultural events launched last weekend at the Istria peninsula.

Jewish American singer Leonard Cohen, who happened to perform in Istria last Friday evening, joined the Israeli celebration after his concert, opening it with a festive Kiddush (blessing said over wine on Shabbat)

together with Israeli Ambassador to Croatia Yossi Amrani.

The singer expressed his enthusiasm over the Israeli culture week, saying that was the way to create a bridge between people and cultures.

Cohen noted that he would have loved to participate in the events, but explained he had to fly to a concert in Scandinavia.
