  1. Harav Addas shlita has been saying selihot for almost two weeks already now along with the rest of the bnei edot hamizrah… please be a little more accurate with your articles, it is the first selichos for the bnei ashkenaz alone

  2. I assume you mean Ashkenazi selichos, since our Sefardi brothers have been saying selichos since Rosh Chodesh.

    In any case, may all the tefilos be niskabel, and may all of Klal Yisroel be zocheh to a kesiva vachasima tovah.
