It would seem the derabbanan sticks very closely to the minhag it preserves.
And a minhag is a property of a community and it's history. When you are not
in a community, only your own minhag avos applies.

Makes sense, in retrospect.

And if that is the sevara, in your case the ben chu"l would be following
his own norm -- and 2 days after all.


What about the resident of chu"l while they're still in Israel? Would
even the Chakham Tzevi or R Chaim Brisker say they must fully keep two
days when in Israel but outside the techum of a Jewish Community?

(Or is this whole linkage to techum only within the BY's shitah?)
