When to say "Brich Shmeih"


["Brich Shmeih" is an Aramaic passage identified in the Zohar for recital when removing the Torah from the Ark.]

There are no clear sources requiring one to say "Brich Shmeih" only after the Torah is removed, although this is specified in the halachic work Shaarei Ephraim. Further, this specification may be seen in the Zohar's language. Therefore, this is the recommendation we should provide to those who ask, but one should not protest against those who recite it earlier.

(Rav Moshe Feinstein, Igrot Moshe Orach Chaim 4:70:9)

Have a great day,
