Please Sign Our 2013 Petition Urging Money Instead of Chickens in Kaporos Rituals

Kaporos observers “should be cultivating mercy for all those who suffer and not be perpetuating pain on sentient creatures in the name of piety.” – Orthodox Rabbi Shmuly Yanklowitz, A Yom Kippur of Mercy or Cruelty? | The Jewish Week.

This year the Alliance to End Chickens as Kaporos is directing our Petition to Rabbi Yehuda Krinsky, Director of Lubavitch World Headquarters in Brooklyn, NY.

Please click on our Petition and add your signature, and if possible a few thoughtful words of your own, about why you are petitioning Lubavitch World Headquarters to urge Kaporos observers to wave money instead of chickens in the week leading up to Yom Kippur (the Jewish Day of Atonement) which this year starts at sunset September 13 and ends at nightfall September 14. Click on the Petition:


The Alliance to End Chickens as Kaporos is a project of United Poultry Concerns comprising an association of groups and individuals who seek to replace the use of chickens in Kaporos rituals with money or other non-animal symbols of atonement.
