An Israeli outside Israel on Yom Tov Sheni


[Yes, there are many views on this topic.]

An Israeli who is outside of Israel temporarily may not perform melachah on Yom Tov Sheni, and on the eighth day of Pesach may not eat chametz, even in private. On the other hand, he must put on tefillin in private. This is because one who travels to another location for a visit is obligated to observe the customs of his home location and his present location.

(Rav Moshe Feinstein, Igrot Moshe Orach Chaim 2:101)

Good moed,
