Positive Mitzvah 


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.
