Mitzvah #216 - Last day Pessach is not a work day

One may not do any Melacha (work as defined by the Rabbis) on the last day of Pessach.

Applies to everybody, everywhere, always

Verse: "And on the 7th day... all work you shall not do" (Vayikra 23:8)

Erratum: A Peruta is only 0.025 grams of pure silver; currently less than 2 US pennies.
