Selichot in Hebron with Chief Rabbis

Thursday, 06 October 2016

Thousands of people attended selichot services at the Tomb of Machpela in Hebron following Rosh Hashana. Leading the services were Israel’s two chief rabbis, Ashkenazic Chief Rabbi David Lau and Sephardic Chief Rabbi Yitzhak Yosef. Selichot, or forgiveness, are special prayers recited before the High Holidays and during the Ten Days of Repentance.
