Shacharit Torah Reading Notes

We conclude the book of Genesis. The final verse of the book is chanted with a special melody. As the reader finishes chanting, the congregation rises. Before the oleh chants the concluding Torah blessing, the congregation chants "Chazak, Chazak, V'nitchazek." The Torah reader then chants the same words. The oleh then recites the concluding Torah blessing. For more detailed instructions and to hear this melody chanted, see ATC 81.
