Mitzvah #91 - Desist from work on Yom Kippour

It's a Mitzva to not do Melacha (certain types of work) on the 10th day of the month of Tishrei.

Any work forbidden on Shabbat is forbidden on Yom Kippour.

One who does any of the 39 forbidden categories of work on purpose on Yom Kippour deserves Karet, if done accidental then he needs to bring a Chatat sacrifice.

Applies to everybody, everywhere, always.

Verse: "It shall be a Shabbat of rest for you" (Vayikra 23:32)
