Can someone explain to me how americans (such as the singer) visiting Israel for sukkos get to keep only one day? am i missing a psak that allows that?
The Lubavitcher Rebbe held that even americans visiting Israel keep only one day. The American who you refer to is a Lubvitcher chossid therefore he only keeps one day of Yom Tov. anonymous
This is the opinion of the Baal HaTanya (the Rav) in his Shulchan Aruch. Lubavitcher Chassidim and Rabbonim pasken this way.
One is allowed to dance with a Sefer Torah by a Bais hakvaros?!
Everyone agrees that Shabbos begins and ends based on your location at the time. Someone visiting EY from Chutz Lo’oretz will start and end Shabbos at the same time as the locals, because that is when Shabbos starts and ends locally. This psak, in Shulchan Oruch HoRav is the logical extension of that idea.
