Blessing, then learning


We have been learning about Birchot haTorah, the blessings recited before studying Torah.

Although the blessings are routinely recited as part of birchot hashachar, the beginning of the morning davening, one should still make sure to study Torah right after reciting the blessings. In general, one immediately performs any mitzvah right after reciting its associated blessing.

Therefore, traditional siddurim print a section of Torah, usually the blessings of the Kohanim and a passage of Talmud, right after these blessings.

(Code of Jewish Law Orach Chaim 47:9)

Have a great day,
