Bob Dylan @ Yom Kippur davening with Chabad in Long Island


SNS has learned that world famous singer-songwriter Bob Dylan caused a buzz when he showed up for Yom Kippur Davening with Chazzan Choni Shagalov and nearly 500 others in Woodbury, NY @ Oyster Bay Chabad.

In past years Dylan has shown up @ services with Chabad in Minnesota and California and rumors had it that he Davened @ Chovevei Torah on Yom Kippur 5761.

The 64-year-old singer was honored with the 6th aliyah, and afterwards had a number of Mi Sheberachs made for his family as well as extended family.

According to our source Dylan followed the Shliach, Rabbi Shmuel Lipszyc’s sermons very closely, and took pleasure in the humor interspersed throughout the meaningful words of inspiration.

Dylan seemingly enjoyed the services very much, as he returned after the break, and remained until the end.
