In my shul, after an oleh finishes, he says "emet torateinu hakedosha" and then says the beracha of noten hatorah. Is this a hefsek?
Looking for sephardic answers please.
See the Kitzur Shulchan Aruch Yalkut Yosef in סימן קלט - סדר הקריאה והברכות where he says:
"From a strict Halachic POV, one may interrupt with Divrei Torah before making the Final Bracha [of Noten HaTorah]."
Since "emet torateinu hakedosha" seems to qualify as Divrei Torah, it would not qualify as a Hefsek - an interruption - between the Torah reading and the Bracha.
