Aliya and chag in the States


#1

Hi, I have an immediate Aliya date and Aliya visa, but I will be in the states for Sukkot, do I need to still keep two days? I heard that since I have an immediate plan to move to Israel, I can hold one day for Sukkot.


#2

Please define what you mean by immediate date? When are you moving to Israel? Are you currently in Israel?


#3

I will be in the States for chag, my Aliya date is in February

Sorry, you are still an American with regards to observing 2 days of Yom Tov for this year Sukkot.

Having an aliya date or flight isn’t enough to consider you an Israeli for this purpose.
