Reciting a berachah if a tallis falls off


If I remove my tallis temporarily, am I required to recite a berachah when I put it back on?

One who removes his tallis and plans to put it back on immediately (some suggest within 30 minutes; others offer a period of hours) should not recite a new berachah, even if he goes to the washroom in the interim. Ideally, one should have these intermissions in mind at the time of his original berachah.

One whose tallis falls off entirely should recite a new berachah, although some suggest this may not be required if one's tallis falls off incessantly. If one's tallis falls off during Shemoneh Esreih, he should put it back on without a berachah. After Shemoneh Esreih he should recite the berachah and shift the tzitzis strings as though putting it on again.

(Shulchan Aruch Orach Chaim 8:14-15; Kaf haChaim 8:52-56; Mishneh Berurah 8:38; Biur Halachah 8 "Im pashat"; Aruch haShulchan Orach Chaim 8:20-22; Chelkas Yaakov Orach Chaim 236; Mishneh Halachos 15:7; Yabia Omer 8: Orach Chaim 2; Tzitz Eliezer 17:5)

Have a great day,
