Text replacement - "Brachot HaShachar" to "Birchot HaShachar"
# One may not go to someone’s house to greet them with “Shalom” once the time for [[Shacharit]] began. If one met the person on the way, it is preferable not to greet them with “Shalom”. <Ref> Gemara [[Brachot]] (14a) writes that one should greet someone with Shalom prior to [[Shacharit]]. Rashi and Tosfot (14a s.v. BeMashkim) hold that if one accidentally met a friend on the way one may greet them with Shalom. However, the Rashba (14a) quotes the Raavad who holds that even if one does not specifically arrange to meet one should not greet with the word “Shalom”. Shulchan Aruch 89:2 rules like Rashi (as the anonymous first opinion) that if one has not arranged to meet, one may greet a person with "Shalom". </ref>
# This prohibition only applies to initiating the greeting, but it is permissible to respond to someone who greeted you. <Ref>Mishna Brurah 89:16 </ref>
# Once the time for [[Shacharit]] comes until one said [[Brachot Birchot HaShachar]] one may not greet one’s friend with the word Shalom but rather should do so with good morning. <Ref>S”A 89:2 </ref># One should not go out of one’s way to greet one’s friend, in the case that one does one should not greet them even with "Good morning", even if one already said [[Brachot Birchot HaShachar]]. <Ref>S”A 89:2, Mishna Brurah 89:12, 14 </ref>
