Eruv Tavshilin for a non-Israeli in Israel


When Yom Tov occurs on Friday, one may prepare food on Yom Tov for Shabbat only if one prepared an eruv tavshilin [described elsewhere on this blog] before Yom Tov began.

If the first day of Yom Tov is Thursday and the second day is Friday, then Israelis don't have Yom Tov on Friday, and they may cook on Friday for Shabbat. Non-Israelis, though, require an eruv tavshilin.

In such a situation, a non-Israeli who is in Israel, who will eat food prepared by Israelis on their own initiative, does not need an eruv tavshilin. However, a non-Israeli who will cook for himself, or who will have food prepared specifically for him, needs an eruv tavshilin.

(Rav Moshe Feinstein, Igrot Moshe Orach Chaim 5:37:9)

Have a great day,
