Kriat Shema al Hamita


If I say kriat shema and still havent fallen asleep after 30 minutes of saying it do I say shema again ?


One of the reasons why the Rema (O:CH 139-1) says that after saying kriyas shema, if one doesn’t fall asleep, he should say it numerous times, is in order that the person falls asleep while thinking torah thoughts. Therefore, after saying kriyas shema a few times if you still don’t fall asleep, you can also listen to a shiur from a mp3 or on the phone… it works wonders!


Mishneh Halachos 3-34.
