Yesterday’s post about Leonard Cohen’s Priestly Blessing – Belfast 2009 called to mind another special Cohen blessing. At the Sept 21 2009 Barcelona show, Leonard incorporated a reference to the Rosh Hashanah custom of eating a slice of apple dipped in honey to express hopes that the upcoming year will be sweet and fruitful. An enlightening exposition of the origins and meaning of this Rosh Hashanah tradition can be found at Aish.com.
