A Chutznik in Israel on Yom Tov


Yesterday we presented the Shulchan Aruch's view that an Israeli who visits another country during Yom Tov would need to observe two days of Yom Tov when in a Jewish community.

The author of the Shulchan Aruch also ruled that a non-Israeli visiting in Israel during Yom Tov would be required to observe two days of Yom Tov, like the practices of his main residence.

This is because Rav Yosef Karo, the author of the Shulchan Aruch, believed that the issue of the second day of Yom Tov is addressed like other matters of custom - one who is not in his home community observes the stringencies of his home community as well as the community in which he is located.

(Avkat Rochel 26; see also Mishneh Berurah 496:13)

Have a great day,
