Drinking water before birkas ha-torah

Question:

Can you say shehakol and drink water in the morning before saying birkas ha-torah?

 

Answer:

Thank you for your question.

Yes you may say shehakol on the water before birkas hatorah. Birkas Hatorah is a bracha we have to say before learning any Torah. We are however allowed to say various brachos, and even tefillos before birkas hatorah. For example, we always say asher yotazr and often we say al netilas yodayim before birkas hatorah.

Best wishes
