Selichot are special prayers for forgiveness that are usually said on fast days, which are occasions when the Jewish People needs special forgiveness for sin. They are also said during the period preceding Yom Kippur, which is obviously also such an occasion. In the Sephardic tradition, Selichot are said beginning with the month of Elul, through Yom Kippur.
