Attending a funeral on the added day of Yom Tov


A non-Israeli who is in Israel on the added day of Yom Tov may attend a funeral of a great person. [We distinguish because there are sufficient people to take care of the needs of a normal person, but for great people all are obligated to be involved.] One may even carry the casket.

(Rav Moshe Feinstein, Igrot Moshe Orach Chaim 3:77)

Have a great day,
