Morning Benedictions

1. The benediction מתיר אסורים (“He that frees the captives”) comes before the benediction זוקף כפופים (“He that raises the bowed down”). But if one erred and said the latter first, he need not say the former.

2. After the benediction המעביר שנה מעיני (“He that removes sleep from my eyes”), Amen is not responded, as this is but part of the benediction. The rest follows, and Amen is said at the proper end.

3. After the benediction דברי תורה, Amen is responded.

4. If one is awake all night, he says all the benedictions except the following: על נטילת ידיםand אלקי נשמה.

5. If a person did not s all the benedictions before the prayers, he may say them afterwards, besides for the blessing of על נטילת ידים.

6. In the case of the benedictions on the Torah, if he forgot to say them before the prayers, he does not say them afterwards, but he should learn some bit of Torah immediately after prayer.

7. However if he does not learn immediately following the prayers he still does not say the blessing.

8 If one is called up to the Torah before he said the morning benedictions he should later return to the benedictions omitting the one אשר בחר בנו (“Who has chosen us”), for he said this when he was called up.

#4 is contrary to the opinion of the Rebbe and the minhag of Chabad Chassidim. Reply
