When there are two or three sifrei torah read on the same day, either the magbiah or golel holds the first sefer while the second is read. In this case should he stand for…
- kadish after reading from the second sefer?
- Hagbah for the second sefer?
I have no halachik reason to think he should/shouldn’t, I just think that I’ve seen most people sit through both and I can’t figure out why.
There have been a bunch of suggestions in the comments section that he doesn't stand out of respect to the second sefer (Why should one have to stand for the other?). I like the answer, but if some sort of authoritative source could be found that would be better.
