Positive Mitzvah 

31

Rest from work on Yom Kippur (Day of Atonement)

 “A solemn rest you shall observe “Vayikra 23:32

 

Whoever does work on Yom Kippur violates this positive commandment and transgresses a negative commandment. (-151)

 

The punishment for intentional transgression is spiritual severance and if done unintentionally then a sin offering is required.

 

All work prohibited on Shabbos is also prohibited on Yom Kippur.

 

This applies in all places at all times for men and women.
