Aliyah without a berachah


There may be no public Torah reading without a berachah; each aliyah is required to have a berachah. Shuls which read the "tochachah" [portions of Parshat Bechukotai and Ki Tavo which predict horrible punishments for the Jewish people when they sin] without a berachah are mistaken, and should change their practice.

(Rav Moshe Feinstein, Igrot Moshe Orach Chaim 2:35)

Have a great day,
