The berachah after an aliyah


After each aliyah, the oleh (person who received the aliyah) recites a blessing thanking Gd for giving us תורת אמת, a Torah of truth, and for planting within us חיי עולם, eternal life. The former phrase refers to the written Torah, and the latter refers to the Torah's verbal explanation, passed down through the ages.

(Shulchan Aruch Orach Chaim 139:9)

Have a great day,
