Bob Dylan’s religious odyssey took a turn home on Yom Kippur.

The folk legend attended services at the Chabad-Lubavitch of Atlanta, according to Dylan was born Jewish but has dabbled in several faiths. He arrived at morning services wearing a ski cap and a tallit, and stayed for the duration, the Web site said. Dylan was called to the Torah for an aliyah by his Hebrew name, Zushe ben Avraham, according to the Chabad outpost’s rabbi, Yossi Lew.

Dylan was in Atlanta for a concert following the holiday.
