In the  Sephardic tradition,  Selichot  are said beginning with the month of  Elul (Rosh Chodesh Elul this year sunset September 3, 2016 – nightfall September 4, 2016), through  Yom Kippur to help worshippers direct their hearts and minds to the process of teshuvah, repentance.   At  the  Selichot service, worshippers begin to examine  their  deeds of the past year,  seeking forgiveness from G-d, and promising to improve  their behavior  in the New Year.

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,  a specially favorable time, in terms of the presence and closeness of  G-d.
