Leonard Cohen was seen lighting "Chanukah" candles in front of his L.A. home
a week before he passed away (on November 7, 2016).
Somebody saw what he was doing and said...
"Hey Leonard, you're a little early for Chanukah candles aren't you?"
Leonard Cohen's reply:
"I don't know if I'll be here by December. But I assure you these candles are not only for Chanukah.
I light them for world peace."
(note: I recently got this story from Leonard's son, Adam Cohen)
