Birkat HaTorah for a Sephardi


#1

I’m Sephardi if I get a Aliyah at a Ashkenazi shul do I say “Hashem Imachem” before I say Barchu?

I said HaShem Imachem and expected them to say Yevarekhha HaShem but they didn’t say it so I said it myself. I don’t know if I did the right thing or should I just not go with my custom and go straight to Barchu?


#2

When praying at an Ashkenazi shul you can skip saying “Hashem Imachem” and go straight to Barchu.


#3

But if I want to say it can I say it low under my breath and then reply to myself…Kinda like the Ben Ish Chai says to do when you say Kiddush alone.


#4

You’re welcome to do that, if you want to.
But there isn’t much meaning to it if you’re saying it to yourself.


#5

What about “His Torah” in the second beracha for sefardim, “Asher Natan Lanu Torato Torat Emet”?


#6

Thats fine. You can say “Asher Natan Lanu Torato Torat Emet”.
