It is a special prayer service that takes place on the evening before Yom Kippur and marks the beginning of the holiday. During Kol Nidrei, the congregation gathers in the synagogue to recite prayers and chant the Kol Nidrei prayer, which nullifies any vows or oaths made in the coming year. This session sets the tone for the solemn and introspective nature of Yom Kippur.
