Birkat Hatorah Before Selichot

The Daily Halacha Moment - Birkat Hatorah Before Selichot 📖

‎״כל השונה הלכות בכל יום - מובטח לו שהוא בן העולם הבא״ (נידה עג ע״א, מגילה כח:)

“Anyone who studies Halachot every day is guaranteed that he is destined for the world-to-come” (Megilla 28b, Niddah 73a)


Does one need to recite birchot Hatorah before reciting Selichot?


If one is reciting Selichot before Shacharit, one must recite birchot haTorah beforehand, since there are many pesukim recited during Selichot, and one may not recite divrei Torah before saying birchot haTorah. [1]
