Very Early Shacharit: How To Begin

If you must say shacharit very early:
     1. Say birchot ha'shachar;
     2. When you reach the end of yishtabach, if it is:
  • 36 minutes (or less) before sunrise:
    • Pause after the blessing (ending El chay ha'olamim),
    • Put on your talit and tefilin, and
    • Say the appropriate blessings.
  • More than 36 minutes before sunrise:
    • Put on your talit and tefilin WITHOUT saying the blessings. Later, after it is less than 36 minutes before sunrise:
      • Hold your tzitzit and say the tzitzit blessing,
      • Move your tefilin slightly,
      • Say the tefilin blessings (if you are in a place in the prayer service where you are permitted to interrupt).
