   Selihot (penitential liturgies) for year round following the rite of Alsace. Selihot are a special order of service consisting of non-statutory additional prayers which are recited on all fast days, on occasions of special intercession and during the Penitential season which begins before Rosh Ha-Shanah and concludes with the Day of Atonement. The word selihah means forgiveness, and in the singular is used to indicate a piyyut whose subject is a plea for forgiveness for sins.

Alsace, former province of the Germanic (Holy Roman) Empire, and from 1648, of France, including the present department of Haut-Rhin and Bas-Rhin. Its Jewry, basically Ashkenazi, developed individual characteristics, in certain ritual matters. The Selihot of the Alsatian rite (Minhag Elzos), has been published several times in at least ten editions (for the first time in Frankfort, 1725).
