Selichot for Ashkenazim


Sephardic Jews have already started their Selichot on Rosh Chodesh ELUL whereas Ashkenazi Jews are only starting tonight. In Jerusalem, thousands of Jews are either streaming to the Kotel (Western Wall) or to their local Synagogues. 

Here are a few pictures from Jews streaming into the Great Synagogue (in Keren Hayesod Street) tonight:
