The following are the earliest times, not necessarily lechatechila; Birchos Hashachar- even in the middle of the night, excepting hanosen lasechvi (machlokes) (if you will return to bed there are other modifications) Korbanos- amud hashachar (if they mention the actual korbanos, otherwise you can say them before that) P'sukei d'zimra- amud hashachar ...

ואם לא מל, חייב כרת. הגה: ובכל יום עוברים בעונשין אלו. ‏ And if he was not circumcised, he receives Karet (Spiritual Excision). Gloss: And he receives this punishment each day. (Shulchan Aruch YD 261:1) CYLOM for a practical ruling, but it seems from the above that the milah should be scheduled as soon as possible to avoid excessive Karet. (I'll ...

It could be that such a custom exists because the baby needs to be 29.5611 days old and if he was born close to the end of one day, then in the summer when the nights are under 12 hours long, he would not be old enough first thing in the morning. (See R Akiva Eiger to Shach 305:12 and Pitchei Teshuva 305:17 who discuss similar concerns.)

Maaseh Rav. My son’s bris was delayed over 5 weeks. It was summertime. The mohel came one afternoon maybe 2 hours before shki’a and said we could do the bris that day. Most of the family were living 200 miles away and could not have attended. I asked my Rav (who is widely respected in the Community) who said that we should go ahead that day as long as ...

There is an opinion that a full lunar cycle must elapse before doing pidyon. One complete cycle takes about 29.5 days. If the baby was born late in the afternoon, and the pidyon haben ceremony is celebrated early in the 31st day, perhaps a complete lunar cycle has not yet elapsed. However, sefaradim hold that one should do pidyon as soon as possible, on the ...

Hacham Ovadia Yosef in Yabia Omer Vol. 2 (Yoreh Deah 18) rules that if you have an option to make a Berit Milah later in the day and more people will come, you should still do it earlier because zerizin makdimim lemitzva takes precedence over berov am hadrat melech. (If, in this specific case, he won't have a minyan unless he waits till later in the day, ...

BS"D Immediately. "When does the time to put them [Tephilin] on begin? When one can see a colleague standing four cubits away and recognize him, until sunset." M"T Hilkhoth Tephilin u'Mezuzah w'Seipher Torah 4:10 "The holiness associated with tefillin is very great. As long as a person is wearing tefillin on his head and arm, he will be humble and ...

A friend of mine had a delayed bris for his son. He said the psak he got was that if it is delayed because the baby is yellow, then you do it as soon as possible after the jaundice has cleared. If it was because the baby was sick with something else, you wait a week before doing the Bris to make sure the baby is healthy. See here where it references the same ...

I believe the mishna brurah says if you daven shachris on shabbos early at a house minyan, you should wait for later mussaf at the big shul, due to b'rov am. Clearly each situation will have its own tradeoffs.

As an answer, I am merely clarifying the gemara and tosfos as DoubleAA alluded to.. The gemara's question: Why do we blow shofar during the additional prayer service. We should blow earlier during the morning service based on the idea that the meticulous perform mitzvos as soon as possible (z'rizin makdimim). The Bavli's Answer: The mishna was learned ...

Regarding Davening early it is best not to daven prior to Vasikin. However in times of great difficulty you may Daven as early as Misheyakir (Shulchan Oruch Orach Chaim 58:1). You may even start Davening before Misheyakir up to Yistabach and put on Talis and tefilin at Misheyakir.

The Shulchan Aruch: Orach Chaim: Siman 89 says that the ideal time to pray Sh'moneh Esrei is at Hanetz hachamah, when the sun shines on the top of the mountains (Mishnah B'rurah there). If one happens to daven after Amud HaShachar- when sun first breaks into the horizon- one fulfills his obligation. The Mishnah B'rurah there infers from the language of the ...
