Separdi Selichot

כ"ה אב ה' אלפים תשס"ז

''בן אבם מג ×?‘ך נרבם קום וקרא בת×??’נונים :''

Come join the Sassoon Yehuda Sephardi Synagogue for the Selihot.
Place : 79 Hotham Street, East St Kilda 3183

The schedule for the Selihot are as follow:

From Thursday the 2nd of Elul 5767 /16th of August 2007 till Friday Eve of Yom Kippur the 9th of Tishrei 5768 21st of September 2007.

Selihot on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Fridays will begin every day at 5:30am while on Mondays and Thursdays at 5:15am.

Selihot on Sundays will begin at 7:30am.

Shahrit service will follow the Selihot.

According to the Tradition, after the sin of the Golden Calf, the first Tablets of the Law were broken by Moshe on the 17th in the Jewish month of Tammuz, the month before Av. Then, Moses ascended Mount Sinai on the first day of the Jewish month of Elul, and remained there until the10th of the month of Tishrei ie. "Yom Kippur". It was only on that day that Hashem forgave the people for their sins regarding the Golden Calf; therefore, these forty days before the Day of Atonement are most appropriate to ask for forgiveness. For that, during that time, we should dedicate our thoughts to repentance in all things and examine our deeds. The Selihot are read at this hour because it is a time of mercy.

The Selihoth contain many beautiful and often haunting melodies and should be read properly, with understanding and with tears in ones eyes. They should be read with feeling to stir the Attribute of Mercy in The Holy One Blessed Be He, and not like those who shout at the top of their voices oblivious to the meaning of the words of supplication emanating from their mouths.
