Halacha - Yom tov shani shel galus
Submitted by anonymous  Answered by Rav Peretz Moncharsh
Answer: Any takana that was enacted by a Beis Din, such as the second day of Yom Tov, can not be cancelled without convening a new Beis Din that is superior to the original in quality and quantity. However, there never was a takana regarding kedushas shvi'is on a lulav. The Halacha is that an agricultural product which is usually consumed through its typical manner of use has kedushas shvi'is, and this used to apply to a lulav and no longer does.
