    Yom Kipurim as they are both Kabolas Hatorah. We should realy eat and drink on Yom Kippur but kapora is also a simcha, enjoyment. We make it up with Erev Yom Kippur. So women would also be mechuyeves in the mitzva of eating Erev Yom Kippur as it is part of Yom Kippur.

    The mishna in Taanis says כשם כשנכנס אב ממעטין בשמחה as when Av arrives we diminish enjoyment כך משנכנס אדר מרבין בשמחה, similarly onwhen Ador arrives, we increase the enjoyment. What is the connection? Fasting is certainly done lashem shomayim. for the sake of heaven, Hashem but enjoying ourselves through eating might not, so we have Purim where our enjoyment should be lashem shimayim. Yom Kippur when we are not eating misses this enjoyment which should be made up through Erev Yom Kippur.

    Both are spiritually uplifting holidays.

    The emotional response should be the same.

    The difference? One is more physical.

    RE – On Erev Yom Kippur – I heard the Klausenburg Rebbe talking about this. He said YK is like Purim.
    I didn’t stay to hear the whole thing.

    There’s a lot of Torah on this subject. Purim is Avodah from Ahava, while YK is from Yira.

    Btw – This is before he moved to Netanya.

    KGN, when we fast on YK, we put our physical sense to sleep and awaken our spiritual sense.

    Also. Purim we first fast then eat, appreciating eating more and YK we eat first and then fast feeling the fast more.

    The holy Berdichever explains the Midrash ולקחתם לכם ביום הראשון it should say to take the lulav the fifteenth not the first day, says the Midrash, ראשון לחשבן עונות first for counting sins. YK the teshuva is miyiroh, from fear but Sukkas the teshuva is from ahava, from love converting the sins to good deeds, benefits, so we can start counting our sins.

    Is anyone aware of the first מקור of this comparison? Is it טור ברקת perhaps?

    There is another similarity between the two כל הפושט יד נותנים לו whoever stretches out his hand give him. Purim below, us, we should give him and Yom Kippur above, Hashem will give him.

    The sefer Shevet Mussar from the 1700 quotes from his rebbi that Purim is mechaper, forgives the sins just as Yom Kippur.

    Just saw a beautiful pshat from Pesach Krohn in the new book on Yomim Noraim.
    On Purim, we were actually zoche to the ובכן תן פחדך And Then the following paragraphs that all the Hashem instilled his fear amongst the nations, which caused them to respect klal Yisroel, which brought about ובכן צדיקים יראו וישמחו, of which eventually brought about בית המקדש השני.
    So on Purim it actually happened, and therefore on the holiest day of the calendar we hope to have a day יום כיפורים, the Day that we should be zoche to again במהרה.

    The holiest day is shabbos which has sekila and seven aliyos. It says by shabbos, ‘שבת שבתון הוא לה where as by YK it says שבת שבתון הוא לכם when YK falls on sbabbos, we fast as the kapara is an oneg shabbos. The Chasam Sofer shows the greatness of the neshama. The holiest you might say is the mishkan, the residence of Hashem. Its builing is not dacha, push away shabbos but pekuach nefesh, saving a live because of the neshama is dacha shabbos. So the neshama is the holiest. Maybe YK is the most productive dqy.
