If I am an israeli cohen davvening with a minyan in chutz laaretz on second day yomtov, must I say Birkay Cohanim with the minyan(and with a brocha)?
The Halacha does not oblige you to say Birkat Cohanim (you have to leave the shul in Chazarat Hashatz before Retze). If you do go up and bless Am Yisrael - you have done a Mitzva. Rabbi Yitzchak Grinblat
