6. Marital relations:

If you are having marital relations, you are not resting. This goes against the Leviticus.


7. Leather Shoes:

There is a strict prohibition of wearing animal skin.


8. Big Meals the Night Before:

You are not allowed to eat big meals the evening before the Day of Atonement. You are only allowed to eat a hearty lunch the day before and have water the evening before the holiday begins.


9. No shopping:

It is seen as taboo to be going out into public places shopping, exchanging money and even eating.


10. Technology:

There is no indication in the Talmud about this. Many assume that Yom Kippur is similar to Shabbat. They thus do not use the telephone and do not turn on electricity or use it.
