The live service will be broadcast from Founder Church of Religious Science in Los Angeles and livestreamed by the jewishjournal.com.

Viewers of the Kol Nidre service, which is the evening service of Yom Kippur, can expect charismatic preaching, traditional prayer and meditation, along with a heavy infusion of musical styles, from reggae to Klezmer to Godspell, performed by a five-piece, multicultural band, according to organizers.

Last year, over 60,000 people from a wide range of faiths across the world tuned into the service. Levy is a Jewish Theological Seminary trained rabbi who founded and leads the group Nashvua, Hebrew for “We Will Return,” a post-denominational, non-membership community that meshes spirituality with social action.
