Selichot are special prayers for forgiveness, said on fast days and also during the period preceding Yom Kippur. At the Selichot service, worshipers begin to examine their deeds of the past year, seeking forgiveness from G-d and promising to improve their behavior in the New Year. The prayers are specifically tailored to help worshipers direct their hearts and minds to the process of teshuvah Hebrew for repentance. In the Sephardic tradition, Selichot are said from the beginning of the month of Elul , while in the Ashkenazic tradition Selichot are begun from the Sunday often the Saturday night before Rosh Hashanah until Yom Kippur. If Rosh Hashanah begins on a Monday or Tuesday, however, selichot begins on the Sunday of the week before Rosh Hashanah , to make sure that there are at least three days of Selichot. In general, the proper time to say Selichot are at the end of the night, just before the morning, since this time is considered, according to Jewish Mysticism , as especially favorable in terms of the presence and closeness of God.

Selichot (Supplication) Prayers

Jewish Prayers: Selichot
The Thirteen Attributes of Mercy are a central theme throughout these prayers. In the Sephardic tradition, recital of Selichot in preparation for the High Holidays begins on the second day of the Hebrew month of Elul. In the Ashkenazic tradition, it begins on the Saturday night before Rosh Hashanah. If, however, the first day of Rosh Hashanah falls on Monday or Tuesday, Selichot are said beginning the Saturday night prior to ensure that Selichot are recited at least four times. This may be because originally the pious would fast for ten days during the season of repentance, and four days before Rosh Hashanah were added to compensate for the four of the Ten days of Repentance on which fasting is forbidden — the two days of Rosh Hashanah , Shabbat Shuvah , and the day preceding Yom Kippur —and, while the fasts have since been abandoned, the Selichot that accompanied them have been retained. Alternatively, the Rosh Hashanah liturgy includes the Biblical phrase, "you shall observe a burnt offering", and like an offering which needs to be scrutinised for defects for four days, so too four days of self-searching are needed before the day of judgment.
