Drake, the Canadian Jewish rapper regularly invited to Shabbat dinner by strangers, is in the midst of his Summer Sixteen tour. Like all good Jewish boys, he’s coming to New York. There’s just one tiny snag: his first show at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center starts Oct. 11 at 6:30 p.m.—that is, nine minutes after sunset on Kol Nidre, which begins Yom Kippur, the holiest day of the Jewish calendar. His second show at Barclays is the following day at 6:30 p.m., which you can probably catch if you duck out of Neilah early.
