shaare tefila in LA has the shabbos chol hamoed Shir Hashirim lained by a Chabad rabbi each year. (main shul - ashkenaz.)
lol, I think Shaarei Tefillah has a little bit more than just Shabbos Chol Hamoed Shir Hashirim that's done by a Chabad Rabbi...

Made the mistake of davening one Shacharis with the non-Chabad minyan.

My luck, find out that y'all do Shir HaShirim on Shabbos Chol HaMoed  >:( ;)

Be carful when thir is no Shabbos Chol HaMoed its done on shabbos achron in the diaspora and first day in Israel

To bring up an old discussion...

Anyone know the source or reason of the Chabad Hagbah?

I've noticed that when rolling the Torah sitting down, very often the Torah does not get rolled tightly (and also ends up not on a seam) which can damage the Torah.

In sefer haminhogim (page 13) it says that the oilah touches (with his tallis) the beginning and the end of the kriah, so the Baal kriah is showing him where to touch...

The oleh must know the place before making a bracha. It's not a minhag

You have the right to remain silent. Anything you say can and will be used to start a religious discussion.

I daven in a chabad shul quit often even-though i am very far from being chabad. I love the shabbos night dancing (is that all chabad?) and singing. I also like the hagbah practice of putting sefer torah back down and rolling it. It is just more practical and simple.
What is a bit more perplexing is the obsession with chasidus and דירה בתחתונים and not much else.  I do get the point but its really over focused upon. (I'm sure its good for some, but with a open mind i just don't connect with it).
 Overall chabab peeps are amazing with hearts of gold and they bring so much joy to so many remote and close Jews.

If דירה בתחתונים is the purpose of my creation and the purpose of all the world's, it makes sense to be obsessed with it
