Blessings before and after the Torah Reading

The person who is “called up” to the Torah is called an oleh (masculine) or an olah (feminine). This literally means, “one who is called up”. A couple or more than one individual who are called up together are called olim.


Each oleh or olah will be called up by his or her Hebrew name. Please be prepared with your Hebrew name (your name and the Hebrew names of your parents) before you are called up.
The oleh or olah will then take the tzizit on his or her talit or the wimple (Torah belt) and use it to mark the place in the Torah where the Torah reader will begin reading. The Torah reader will point out this place. Once the spot has been touched, the oleh or olah will kiss the tzizit or wimple.
The oleh/olah recites: 
