Shabbos Bulletin Parshas Nitzavim-Vayeilech 5777
Ashkenazim have different נוסחאות for selichos:
- Minhag Lita
- Minhag Polin
- Minhag Medinas Ashkenaz
Each Shul has the nussach it follows.
If an individual is davening סליחות in a place which is saying a nussach which is NOT the one he usually uses, he must still join in and say the nussach of the tzibbur with which he is davening. If he davens in his regular tzibbur the next day and finds that they are saying one or two selichos which are a repetition of what he said the previous day, he must still say them again with this tzibbur.

In all kadeishim from RH to YK, we repeat the word l’eilah (l’eilah l’eilah). Some say l’eilah ul’eilah. (The former, “l’eilah l’eilah“, seems to the Rav to be more logical, but then again…who knows? But that is the Rav’s preference for those davening at the amud at the Shul).
- Aruch HaShulchan says to make sure to say “l’eilah l’eilah.”
- Mishneh Berureh when describing various nuances in Kaddish (in 56:2), just writes to say “l’eilah ul’eilah” between RH and YK, but doesn’t make any sort of issue of it. In 582:16, he just writes “we repeat the word l’eilah”
- Matteh Efrayim writes to say l’eilah l’eilah.
