It is a worldly custom that on Simchas Torah all the male children receive an Aliyah to the Torah. This Aliyah is customarily known as Kol Hanearim. It is customary to spread a Tallis over the heads of the children during this Aliyah. It is likewise customary to recite the verse of Hamalach Hagoel after the conclusion of the reading. Practically, the Chabad custom is not to spread a Tallis over the heads of the children during the Aliyah of Kol Hanearim. Likewise, it is not customary to read the verses of Hamalach Hagoel.
