What is Selichot [and what are selichot]?

The service we have late Saturday night before Rosh Hashana isn’t in the Torah, and it isn’t in the Talmud either. There isn’t even a standard liturgy for it. So: Where did it come from? When did it originate? Why do it at midnight?

For 90 minutes, we will try to answer these questions and many more in preparation for Selichot service Saturday, Sept 21.
