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 them and everyone that we care for them.
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 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.
