Texting Before Shacharis


Shalom aleichem Rabbi Lauffer. Thank you for answering my last question. Would one be allowed to text someone a greeting or any other type of texting conversation before he has davened shacharis and after dawn, or would this come under the prohibition of greeting people or otherwise talking to them before he has davened shacharis. Thanks a lot.



  1. I have never seen anyone address your exact question but but my feeling is that texting nowadays is no different from speaking and a person should refrain form texting until after daevning.
