Posture during an aliyah


The baal keriah (Torah reader) and the person who receives an aliyah must stand during the Torah reading. They may not even lean on anything.

One who is ill or infirm may lean on something, but he should not lean on the table on which the Torah rests. That table is dedicated solely for use with the Torah.

(Shulchan Aruch Orach Chaim 141:1; Mishneh Berurah 141:4)

Have a great day,
