When is the obligation for Shacharit? Is this what is considered the morning?
Is it dawn (alot hashachar), or the earliest time for tallit and tefillin, or sunrise (netz), or the latest time for tefilla according to whatever source a person follows?
I'm interested in an answer to this on its own, and I'm also interested to know because someone said it's permissible to eat and drink before that time on both Shabbat and weekdays, without first davening on either of these days, and without making kiddush on Shabbat. Is that accurate?
