Since rosh hodesh Elul is a mini-holiday do you need to wait till the day after rosh hodesh or do sefardim begin saying selihot on the first of Elul?


They start after Rosh chodesh. Source: http://www.sephardichazzanut.com/Selichot.htm

Starting after Rosh Hodesh Elul, Sephardic Jews around the world wake up in the early morning to recite the Selichot which consist of special prayers and poems.

  • @AniYodea don't know, I'm not sefardi. But from the quote, it seems that it's the morning – user613 Aug 12 '15 at 2:39
