Yom Kippur starts tonight at sundown.
Kol Nidre, the name derived from the first major piece of the Yom Kippur prayers, dramatically chanted at the evening service. All the Torahs are taken out, the entire congregation stands, and the cantor chants this formula three times. While most people think that Kol Nidre is a prayer, it is actually a legal formula, as described in this article, reprinted with permission from TheJewish Religion: A Companion, published by Oxford University Press.
