Selichot (in Hebrew סליחות AKA Slichos or Slichot‎) are Jewish poems and prayers of repentance, recited during the period prior to the High Holidays, in preparation for The Days of Awe from Rosh Hashana to Yom Kippur. While Selichot are prayed in every Synagogue according to the local customs, many Israelis as well as tourists make their way to Jerusalem for Selichot Tours, in search of a meaningful way to experience the month of Elul, the time to repent and ask forgiveness and start anew.

The crisp, cool air is a refreshing change from the heat of the past few months and affords the perfect opportunity to open yourself to self-examination.

The Month of Mercy and Forgiveness Has Begun

There are many ways to get into the mindset for the High Holy Days! You can choose from a variety of organized tours in Jerusalem which focus on this special period in the Jewish calendar.

From a nighttime walk through the alleyways of the Old City and Jewish Quarter, to a trek from one synagogue to another in different historically significant neighborhoods, to a show of stories and poems… There are many options, suitable for the whole family…

Bring comfortable shoes and a jacket and choose the tour that suits you best. There are private Selichot tours, tour groups, tour packages – so many options, you’ll be able to find one to suit your spiritual aspirations as well as your budget. Options include programs in Hebrew or English.

There are nighttime tours through the Old City and the Jewish Quarter which end up at the Kotel (Western Wall) for Selichot. For more information, see: http://www.towerofdavid.org.il/english/activities/general_public/selichot_tours_and_the_night_spectacular.

There is a very special program of stories and poems for the whole family. Don’t miss the opportunity to participate in the program “Longing for Jerusalem” in the Moat at the Citadel.
