Fasting on Isru Chag
Is it permissible to fast on the 7th of Sivan in Israel?
One may not fast on the day after Shavuot. This prohibition is stricter in Israel than in Chutz L'aretz where there are two days of Yom Tov, and stricter on the day after Shavuot than on the day after Sukkot or Pesach (see Shulchan Aruch Orach Chayim 494;3 and commentaries)
