While his death was announced this morning, we scanned through the archives and found this amazing video only possible because of Leonard Cohen. It happened in 2009, during his concert in Tel Aviv at the Ramat Gan Stadium. The entire venue, 47,000 tickets, were sold within less than 24hours, an Israeli record.

At the end of his concert, the Canadian singer decided to take advantage of his jewish heritage to bless the entire stadium with the prayer that only people named Cohen (the Cohen were the jewish priests back then) are allowed to do. A unique and privileged spiritual moment he shared with all his fans. Watch, you’ll be moved…
