Can you say Shnayim Mikra for Parshas Breishis prior to Simchas Torah?
I asked my Rav this night and he told that we have to do it Friday pm (I live in France so 2 days of Yom Tov) after the reading of Vezoth Haberakha.
The Mishnah Acharonah says that one may start immediately after the Chosson Braishis has read his portion.
That seems to be one source on which allced's Rov might have relied.
I now found in Wikipedia:
which is a leniency. I did not find the original source.
Asked an OR tonight, 12 Sep 13. He says you can start right after the end of the reading for the Chosson Torah i.e. while the Reader is saying the "Reshus" for the Chosson Braishis.
