Sephardic Jewry has begun its SELICHOT


Sephardi Jews have just begun with their SELICHOT prayers before Rosh HaShana. Last night I listened live on the radio to one of those services. It sounds very different from Ashkenazi Selichot which only begin on Mozzaei Shabbat before Rosh HaShana but I find the tunes very original.

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.
