The unlearned aliyah


Technically, an aliyah to the Torah should only be given to one who knows how to read the aliyah from the Torah. In practice, though, we will call up a person who cannot read from the Torah but could repeat it after the reader.

(Shulchan Aruch Orach Chaim 135:4, 139:2; Mishneh Berurah 135:15, 139:4)

Be well,
