What if I forgot Birchot haTorah?


We have been discussing Birchot haTorah, the blessings recited before Torah study.

One who forgets to recite these blessings but then prays the traditional morning prayers, may consider the blessing that precedes Sh'ma as the blessing upon Torah study, because that blessing includes a request that Gd provide us with understanding so that we may learn, teach and practice the Torah.

One who uses that blessing as the blessing upon Torah study should then learn some Torah immediately after morning prayers, so that the blessing will be associated with actual study.

(Mishneh Berurah 47:1)

Have a great day,
