The 227th mitzvah is that we are commanded to execute by strangulation1 those who transgress certain mitzvos.

The source of this commandment is G‑d's statement2 (exalted be He), "He shall be put to death."3

In our list of the prohibitions we will point out which mitzvos are punishable by strangulation.

The details of this mitzvah are explained in the 7th chapter of tractate Sanhedrin.
