The Torah reading on Chol HaMoed Sukkot is different in Israel (each day’s mussaf sacrifice is read four times) and the Diaspora (more than one day’s portion is read to take account of sfeika d’yoma (the doubt as to which day the festival actually started)).

If there is a minyan located in Israel but composed entirely of foreign tourists, what should they read? What if the majority are foreigners, but there is a minority of locals?

  • BTW do we have anything here on MY about the issue of the double portions? Commented Sep 28, 2018 at 8:33
  • Note fwiw that the Chabad custom in Israel is to read the same first three sections as outside Israel and to read the day's offering as the fourth section.

  • Are they going to Dukhen? Say two days worth in Musaf? Skip Barukh Hashem Leolam? Did they keep two day Yom Tov?

  • @DoubleAA All good questions. An answer to this one may answer those as well (or it may not). I think adding all of them into the question may be straying in to ‘too broad’ territory...
