196 - EATING ON YOM KIPPUR


Leviticus 23:29 -- “For any person who is not afflicted in soul on that same day shall be cut off from his people.”

Willful contravention of this prohibition is punishable by extinction, and one who violates it unintentionally must bring a fixed sin offering, as explained at the beginning of Kerithoth, and in Tractate Horayoth.

According to the Mishnah: “A sick person is fed on the Day of Atonement at the behest of experts; and if no experts are there, one feeds him at his own wish until he says, ‘Enough!’”*

* Yoma 82a
