Chicken Kaporos Demos in Brooklyn:
Please Join Us!

Street Protests, Chicken Rescues, Moving Illuminated Billboards,
New Posters! We Need YOU! September 10-12, 2013

Dear Friends,

Please join our 4th annual street protest in Brooklyn, NY against the cruel and needless use of chickens in Kaporos rituals. This year we’re renting a “moving lit billboard” – a van with huge images illuminated on the sides and the back.

Sept 10, 2013, 6 - 8 p.m.
    792 Eastern Parkway, (corner Kingston Ave.), Brooklyn, NY, 11213

Sept 11, 2013, 6 - 8 p.m.
    502 Ave. P, (corner E. 5th Street), Brooklyn, NY, 11223

Sept 12, 2013, 6 - 8 p.m.
    792 Eastern Parkway, (corner Kingston Ave.), Brooklyn, NY, 11213

An activist Hasidic Rabbi has generously provided us with images, including one of himself tenderly holding a rooster, an audio file to BROADCAST FROM THE VAN URGING PRACTITIONERS TO USE MONEY, NOT CHICKENS, and translations of our messages into Hebrew along with English.

We know it is difficult to attend a demo where animals are suffering and dying in front of us, but as hard as it is for us, it is infinitely harder for the chickens, and we must be there for them and show that we care.

Please read A Wing and A Prayer for more information about the Kaporos (Kapparot) ritual. Please join us in Brooklyn to let the chickens know we’re there for them.

Please watch our new 60-second video featuring Rabbi Yonassan Gershom,
Kaporos: A Heartfelt Plea for Mercy.


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.
