The earliest time for the morning Shema


The earliest time to recite the morning Shema is when there is enough light that one could recognize a somewhat familiar friend at a distance of six to eight feet. However, a person who absolutely will not be able to recite Shema between that time and the latest acceptable time may say it earlier, from the very first light.

(Shulchan Aruch Orach Chaim 58:1,3; Mishneh Berurah 58:2)

Have a great day,
