What may well be the largest Kol Nidre service of all time, potentially reaching more than 20,000 worshippers around the world, will be conducted by Rabbi Naomi Levy on Sept. 13, 2013 at 6:45 p.m (PST).

The live service will stream from Los Angeles, Calif., and will be transmitted and archived via jewishjournal.com, the largest Jewish news site outside of Israel.

Kol Nidre is the evening service of Yom Kippur, or Day of Atonement, the most important holiday of the Jewish year. Many Jews who do not observe any other Jewish custom will refrain from work, fast and/or attend synagogue services on this day. This day is, essentially, your last appeal, your last chance to change the Divine judgment, to demonstrate your repentance and make amends.

Levy, a rabbi and author, was ordained in the first class of women at Jewish Theological Seminary. She founded and leads Nashuva, Hebrew for “We Will Return.”  Nashuva is a post-denominational community that meshes spirituality with social action. 

Levy’s high-energy services combine charismatic preaching, traditional prayer and meditation, along with a heavy infusion of musical styles, from reggae to klezmer, performed by the Nashuva band.
