HaMotzi standing

Question:

BS”D

Shalom, is there any halakha forbidding to do hamotzi standing?

Answer:

Hello,

Halachicaly one is allowed to say hamotzi while standing. However, since the meal should be eaten while sitting (Gittin 70a ), the beracha should also preferably be made in the same manner, i.e. while sitting.

All the best
