Having an Aliyah (being called up to the Torah)

Being called up to the Torah is called an Aliyah which actually means an ascent to the holiness of the Torah reading itself. To signal this honour we make a special blessing thanking God for choosing us, and for giving us the Torah, His covenant with us.
