ג׳ באלול ה׳תשע״ה (August 18, 2015)
In the Sephardic tradition, Selichot are said beginning with the month of Elul (1st day of Rosh Chodesh Elul this year August 16) , through Yom Kippur to help worshipers direct their hearts and minds to the process of teshuvah, repentance. 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.
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. Hence, selichot are typically recited in the early morning, before the daily shacharit service.
