Halacha - Guest
Submitted by anonymous  Answered by Rav Peretz Moncharsh
Answer: On Shabbos or overnight there is no problem hosting a guest even if they are not Jewish, but you should be careful to put away any opened bottles of wine and observe all halachos of yichud. However, on Yom Tov one may not serve a non-Jewish guest out of concern that extra food would be prepared for them on Yom Tov, and cooking etc. on Yom Tov is only permitted for a Jew. So if you want to have this person over for a meal on Yom Tov, you would first need to clarify their status.
