QUESTION

Riverdale, NY

Which of the Keriat HaTorah options that allow for distancing (the ba’al korei gets all aliyot; oleh takes it from their seat; oleh approaches but does not stand at the Torah; something else) makes the most sense halakhically?

ANSWER

They are all legitimate. I prefer 7 olim getting it, especially if they can see the ketav and/or make a move towards the Torah.
