Can I watch a Rebbe video before saying Brochos?

 

Question:

Is it permissible to watch a Rebbe video in the morning, while still in bed, after Modeh Ani and Negel Vasser?

Would there be a difference between, for example, watching the Rebbe talking at a Farbrengen or watching the Rebbe give out Kos Shel Brocha?

 

Answer:

A video of the Rebbe talking should not be viewed before Birchas Hatorah. A video of the Rebbe davening or giving out Kos Shel Beracha, dollars or kuntresim would be permissible (provided in a respectful manner).
