Selihot, a deeply revered tradition in Judaism, represents a sacred period of spiritual preparation preceding the High Holy Days, notably Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur. During this time, Jewish communities worldwide gather in prayerful reflection, seeking repentance and forgiveness for transgressions committed throughout the year.

Rooted in centuries-old customs, Selihot services typically take place in the early hours of the morning, adding an aura of solemnity and introspection to the proceedings. Participants engage in special prayers, penitential poems, and soulful melodies, immersing themselves in a profound dialogue with the divine.

Selihot serves as a poignant reminder of the human capacity for growth, renewal, and reconciliation, inviting individuals to embark on a spiritual journey of self-examination and moral elevation in anticipation of the Days of Awe.
