  1. If one did not sleep all night, such as on the night of Shavuot, there is a dispute whether one should recite Birchot HaTorah or not. According to Ashkenazim, one should try to hear the brachot from someone else, and then say some psukim afterwards. If one is unable to do that, one view is one should have intent that one's bracha of Ahava Rabba should count for Birchot HaTorah, and then learn after tefillah, while another view is like that one simply makes them as usual.[1] However, the Sephardic minhag is to say Birchot HaTorah by oneself.[2]
  2. If one slept Shinat Kevah, normal sleep in a bed, the day before staying up all night, one should recite the Birchot HaTorah in the morning after one did not sleep.[3]
  3. If one slept Shinat Kevah the day before staying up all night, one should make the Brachot HaTorah in the morning after one didn’t sleep. [4]
  4. One should not say birkot hatorah until after alot hashachar.[5] One should not learn after Olot HaShachar until he said Birchot HaShachar. [6]
    1. Mishna Brurah 47:28, Rabbi Hershel Schachter (cited by Bet Yitzchak vol 30, p. 592). The view that says one should say it (Aruch Hashulchan OC:47:23) thinks Birchot HaTorah is similar to other Birchot HaShachar, which are said every morning, regardless of whether one slept or not.
