Chapter 139:25 (b)
Chanukah

25. When "Rosh Chodesh Teves" falls on Shabbos, three Torah scrolls should be taken out [of the ark]. Six people are called up for reading of the weekly portion ("Parshas HaShavua") from the first scroll. The seventh person is called up for the reading of the Rosh Chodesh passage from the second scroll; we begin the Rosh Chodesh passage from the words, "Uv'yom haShabbos" (see Chapter 78:1, and Chapter 79:1). The half-kaddish is then recited, and the "Maftir," which consists of the Chanukah reading appropriate to that day (1), is read from the third scroll.

"Roni v'simchi" is recited as the Haftorah. Although, in general, we follow the principle that the more frequently occurring mitzvah takes precedence ("Todir Ve'She'Eino Todir, Todir Kodem"), [and therefore, we should be reading the Rosh Chodesh Haftorah rather than the Chanukah Haftorah], that rule is applied [only] to the reading from the Torah scroll, from which we read both [the portion of Rosh Chodesh and that of Chanukah]. However, only one Haftorah is recited, and therefore, the Chanukah Haftorah supersedes that of Rosh Chodesh, because [it serves to] publicize the Chanukah miracles.
