Outside Israel

Eating in the Sukkah

  1. Some say that a Jew from outside Israel who is visiting Israel for Sukkot should not eat in the Sukkah if it’s difficult to sit alone in the Sukkah. [1] However, if he is alone anyway, such as if he’s in a hotel, he should eat in the Sukkah. [2]
  1. It’s permissible to eat in the Sukkah after Shemini Aseret and it’s not an issue of Bal Tosif. [3]

  3. Rama 666:1 writes that it’s clear that one isn’t sitting in the Sukkah to fulfill the mitzvah after Sukkot and so there’s no issue of Bal Tosif, however it would be an issue on Shemini Aseret because it’s so close to the holiday.
