Presenting divrei torah between aliyot of the Torah reading


The ancient practice of translating the Torah into Aramaic between verses was halted [in much of the Jewish world], because the community did not understand Aramaic. Therefore, one should not reinstate it, even between aliyot.

"One also should not insert alternative translations or commentaries, for there is disagreement about proper translation/commentary to the Torah."

(Rav Moshe Feinstein, Igrot Moshe Orach Chaim 4:40:21)

Have a great day,
