Reciting Shma just before going to sleep


The Shma we recite before bed is meant to be recited just before sleeping, so one should wait to recite it until he senses that sleep is near. However, one who lies in bed for some time after Shma, without engaging in another activity, need not repeat Shma.

(Code of Jewish Law Orach Chaim 239:1; Mishneh Berurah 239:3)

Have a great day,
