The Luach Kolel Chabad says a minor can't be maftir on the seventh day of Pesach. Why?


Because we want to show extra honor to the Song of David recited as the haftarah, and have an adult read it (Magen Avraham 282:12, cited in Shulchan Aruch Harav 284:8).

  • Thank you! And that led me to find that the Mishna B'rura also cites the MA l'halacha, at 282:23. – msh210 May 1 '11 at 22:07
