When I was writing this (PTIJ) answer, I assumed that someone from outside Israel can't cook for someone from Israel on the second day of Yom Tov. I didn't realize until afterwards that I couldn't think of a source and wasn't sure if it's true.

Was I correct? Or was I inadvertently making it up?

(Maybe someone who's not obligated in this particular day doesn't count as לכם?)

  • to further complicate, is there going to be a difference if the location is chutz laaretz or erez yisroel?

  • Considering that the 2nd day is just strict b/c of uncertainty, ma nafshach, if it is Yom Tov, the Israeli is also obligated and therefore it is permitted to cook for him, and if it isn't, everyone's allowed to cook for everyone.
