The widespread practice seems to say the beracha of HagGomel in the presence of a Sefer Torah. Is this a halacha or a minhag? What is the source for this practice?

Furthermore, what is the relationship between the beracha of HagGomel and a Sefer Torah?


1 Answer 1


Orach Chaim 219:3 we make the Bracha of Hagomel in front of a Sefer Torah since there is 10 people there and it is proper to say the Bracha with a Minyan.

  • This seems like a partial answer, to me. Why specifically at Torah reading? Why not say it after Kaddish is said?
