In today's day and age with COVID, many synagogues are streamlining the process for safety reasons. One of the things is to have the same person who opens the Aron, take out the Torah and then close the Aron. Would it be a lack in כבוד התורה, honor to the Torah, to while holding the Torah do another activity like closing the Aron?
Would it matter if there are other Torahs in the Aron or not?
Obviously health takes precedence. However, someone asked me the question.
