Minhagei Shabbos Chazon:[1]

As a rule, due to the prohibition against showing public mourning on Shabbos, we act on this Shabbos like any other Shabbos of the year. Including singing by Lecha Dodi, saying the Kriah and Haftorah in the regular Niggun, singing regular Shabbos songs and the like.

Hashem shows a Jew the vision of the Beis Hamikdash on Shabbos Chazon: See Introduction to this chapter!


Reading of Parshas Devarim-Shabbos Chazon:

Sefer Haminhagim/Luach Kolel Chabad: When reading the Kohen portion in the beginning of Parshas Devarim, the reader pauses one verse before the usual break for Sheini, in order that the passage to be read for the next congregant should not open with the word Eichah [which recalls the Book of Lamentations read on Tisha B’av].[2]

Hiskashrus: One is to read for Kohen until the verse of Eicha, as has become the custom in 770 from after 1967.


[1] Piskeiy Teshuvos 551:4

[2] This is the custom as practiced in the shul of the Previous Rebbe and of the Rebbe Shlita. [In recent years, however, the reader customarily pauses at the usual break for Sheini.]
