Reciting Slichot alone


We recite Selichot in the days leading up to Rosh haShanah and Yom Kippur, as well as on fast days. One may recite these prayers in private, although prayer in a group is always preferable.

One who prays alone should omit the Aramaic portions. According to most authorities one should also skip the portions of Selichots which list the 13 attributes of Divine mercy, but some suggest one may recite them as they appear in the Torah, with the notes of the trop.

(Mishneh Berurah 581:4, Kaf haChaim 581:26, Yabia Omer 1:Orach Chaim 35)

Have a great day,
