I would like to take this moment to point the members of this chat to an interesting YouTube channel where one has taken it upon himself to record a reading of the 6 volumes of Rav ovadiah Yosef's yechave data, the original shut chazon ovadiah, and many other seforim of his such as chazon ovadiah and commentary on avot. So if you are taking a drive or a walk and would rather not do it alone... m.youtube.com/user/yehiel1966/playlists

Hi
Something happened today that I've never seen happen before.
With the sefer Torah opened up to Haazinu the kohen made the bracha "Asher bachar banu" and the Baal Koreh began reading Haazinu.
Like any good community would do, everybody immediately started yelling "Vezos Habracha" because the wrong parsha was being read. So naturally we needed a new bracha.
The Torah was rolled a couple columns to Vezos Habracha and the kohen started reciting the bracha "Asher nosan lanu." Naturally, again everybody started yelling "Asher bachar banu," but the kohen self assuredly shook his head and continued with the bracha he had begun. The Baal Koreh read the first reading and then the oleh made the bracha "Asher nosan lanu" again.
No idea if that was right

@Daniel The place I know this is discussed is shulḥan aruch OḤ 140:3, and I don't see such a suggestion in the commentaries I looked at.

A: Achad asar - mi yodeya?

AlexEleven is the maximum number of consecutive days when the Torah can be read (outside of Eretz Yisrael): If the first day of Sukkos falls on a Tuesday, then we have a reading on Monday (part of the regular weekly Torah portion), then the nine days of Sukkos/Shemini Atzeres/Simchas Torah, and then...

Points to anyone who leins all 11 days.
Chag Sameach to all
