Question

What is the difference between the second day of Rosh Hashana and the second day of the festivals which is kept outside of Israel?

Answer

There are several differences between the second day of Rosh Hashana and the second day of the festivals. The main difference is that the second day of the festival is observed only outside of Israel and not in Israel. The second day of Rosh Hashana is observed in Israel too, as is explained in Shulchan Aruch Orach Chaim 601:2.
