On one Shabbos, to accommodate a large number of guests from another shul who follow a triennial Torah reading cycle, can we revert to the triennial cycle reading for that one Shabbos?

I didn't know that anyone still follows that cycle – b a Nov 9 '12 at 22:01
If you did so wouldn't you be missing out on your regular reading? If so, why do their needs come before yours? – Double AA Nov 10 '12 at 23:19
I agree with @DoubleAA. A more interesting question would be whether a shul on the triennial cycle should/must do the full reading if the large number of guests are from a congregation that does so. – Monica Cellio Nov 11 '12 at 0:29
Perhaps it would help to specify which stream of Judaism is being discussed - Orthodox, Conservative, Liberal, Reform etc. – Epicentre Nov 11 '12 at 6:23
Leib, perhaps you can answer another question. – msh210 Dec 28 '14 at 8:14
