Selihot

We prepare for the mood of the High Holidays by reciting penitential Selihot during the month of Elul.  Shearith Israel maintains an old and unusual custom of reciting a short form of Selihot and blowing the shofar following the weekday evening service.  We also recite a much longer form of Selihot early in the mornings preceding Rosh Hashanah and Kippur.
