On weekdays of Hol Hamo'ed Pesach we take out 2 Sifrei Torah.
After the 3rd aliyah, the 2nd Torah is placed next to the 1st and hagbah is done on the 1st. We then read from the 2nd.
Q - Before saying Half Kaddish, does the 1st Torah need to be returned to the table to say Kaddish on both of them?
Note: This coming Shabbat (Vayikra/Rosh Chodesh/Hachodesh) with 3 Sifrei Torah has a similar situation. Perhaps, the fact that there is a maftir, and Kaddish separates the 7th aliyah from maftir, maybe there are different rules than Hol Hamo'ed which doesn't have maftir?
