    Aliyot for special Shabbatot that include three Sifrei Torah have been improved. We read from three Sifrei Torah when Rosh Chodesh coincides with Shabbat HaCodesh, Shabbat Shekalim or Shabbat Chanukah. Although some minyanim have the custom of reading 8 aliyot, we now take the more common approach of including the typical 7 aliyot for Shabbat. The 1st Sefer Torah is for regular Torah reading (aliyot 1-6), the 2nd Sefer Torah is read for the 7th aliyah for Rosh Chodesh (Numbers 28:9-15) and the 3rd Sefer Torah is read for the maftir aliyah (the special Shabbat).
