Hagbah when there are two Sifrei Torah


On a day when there are two Torah scrolls, after we complete our reading from the first one we do not pick it up (for Hagbah) until the second one has been placed on the shulchan (reading table), so as not to leave ourselves absent from the mitzvah of the Torah reading.

However, we do not unwrap the second Torah until after the first Torah has been wrapped up; we do not overlap the mitzvot of the two Torah scrolls.

(Shulchan Aruch Orach Chaim 147:8)

Have a great day,
