Sephardic Jews and their Selichot Prayers


Tomorrow morning, the morning of Rosh Chodesh Elul (beginning of the Jewish month of Elul), Sephardic Jewry is going to start it's Selichot prayers before Rosh HaShana (the Jewish New Year). Ashkenazic Jews only begin those prayers on Mozzaei Shabbat before Rosh HaShana.

Here a few interesting photos from the Sephardic Selichot prayers taking place last year. Not every Ashkenazi Jew is used to listen to the Sephardic Selichots, as they are mostly sung together with oriental melodies.

All pictures may be viewed here:
