כ״א באלול ה׳תשע״ו (September 24, 2016)
In the Sephardic tradition, Selichot on the second day of the month of Elul and recite Selichot throughout the entire Elul (Selichot for iPhone according to the nusach Sephardi).
In the Ashkenazic tradition, it begins on the Saturday night before Rosh Hashanah.
This Saturday night, after midnight, or in the early hours of the morning, Ashkenazim begin recitation of Selichos. We continue the recitation of Selichos on every subsequent weekday morning through Erev Yom Kippur.
Selichos should be said before Shacharit, towards the end of the night. The end of the night is an “Et Ratzon” – an auspicious time when Hashem is more receptive to listening to ones prayers.
RustyBrick in partnership with Davka Corp. has released Selichot Nusach Lita & Edut Hamizrach (only in Hebrew).
The app includes all Selichot from before Rosh Hashanah through Aseret Yamei Teshuva. The app automatically selects the proper Selichot for that day. You can also browse the Selichot for the other days as well.
This simple and easy to use app includes features such as:
- Built in calendar selects correct Selichot for that day
- Browse all sections of Selichot
- Navigate within each day easily to skip to preferred section
- Hatarat Nedarim for Erev Rosh Hashanah
- Kaparot for Erev Yom Kippur
