The berachah before an aliyah


One who is called to the Torah recites a berachah before the aliyah. One should make sure to look away from the Torah's text, or to close his eyes, lest it appear that the blessing itself appears in the Torah.

(Shulchan Aruch Orach Chaim 139:4; Mishneh Berurah 139:19)

Have a great day,
