In Melbourne Shabbat begins Fri 25 May 2018 04:53 PM and ends Sat 26 May 2018 05:53 PM
כ"ט אדר א' ה' אלפים תשס"ח
This Shabbat — Parshat Pekudei-Shabbat Chazak-Shabbat Shekalim-Shabbat Rosh Chodesh Adar II — there will be three separate Torah readings. That calls for three Sifrei Torah to be taken out. Enclosed is a copy of instructions for the gabbai which was reprinted from “The Young Israel Rabbi’s Letter.”
GABBAI INSTRUCTIONS FOR SHABBAT SHEKALIM THAT IS ALSO ROSH CHODESH ADAR
 Three Sefarim are read from and should be taken out of the Aron haKodesh in the following order:  Parashat haShavuah  Rosh Chodesh / Pinchas  Parashat Shekalim / Ki Tissa
 No hosafot are to be made this Shabbat for halachic reasons. Shishi and Shvii are combined into one aliyah.
 Put down the second Torah (Rosh Chodesh - Pinchas) to the left of the first Torah. Caution: No Kadddish is said here since seven aliyot have not as yet been read.
 Call up first hagbahah and g'lilah and recite their Mi Shebayrach. Caution: Do not open the second Torah until the first one is covered.
 Call up Shvii and recite a Mi Sheberach for the one who had shishi. Second Torah is read for Rosh Chodesh beginning with U'veyom haShabbat through U'veroshei chodsheichem
 Put down the third Torah to the left of the second. Kaddish is now recited.
 Call up second hagbahah and g'lilah and recite their Mi Shebayrach. Caution: Do not open the third Torah until the second one is covered.
 Call up Maftir and recite a Mi Shebayrach for the one who had sh'vii. Third Torah is read - Parshat Shekalim - Ki Tissa
 Replace the second Torah to the left of the third.
 Recite Mi Shebayrach for the one who was called for Maftir.
 Call up third hagbahah and g'lilah and recite their Mi Shebayrach.
 There is no room on our shulchan for all three Sifrei Torah unless the baal-maftir holds a chumash or little TaNaCH in his hand. It is not allowed to lean a printed sefer on a sefer Torah. Therefore, if the big Koren TaNaCH is used, place only two sifray Torah on the shulchan and the first one that was used for Parashat hashavuah is to be held by someone throughout the recitation of the Haftarah.
