The Aliyah L'Torah Part 12

If one will talk during laining he may leave in between the aliyahs and talk outside.(148) One who feels he must talk between aliyos to avoid talking during laining may talk a short word or two in between aliyos. (149) One can be lenient and learn by himself in between aliyos.(150) One who learns in between the aliyos must still be careful to listen to the barchu and berochos of each oleh. (151)

A Rav should not give a speech to his congregants in between the aliyos.(152) Some say if it is an appeal it is permitted. (153)

Many poskim say that the tzibbur should not read along while the laining is taking place, and instead they should listen carefully to the ba'al koreh.(154) One who will not have time to be maaver sedra may read along with the ba'al koreh. (155)
