Source in Torah to keep the festivals

07.09.18

Question

Where is the source in the Torah that a festival has to be kept like Shabbat?

Answer

The verses are explicit in the Book of Leviticus, Chapter 23.

The Mishna in Megillah points out, however, that on a festival it is permissible to do an act of work which relates directly to necessary human needs of that day.
