Video and Images from 2007 Kaporos in Crown Heights, Brooklyn
This video and images were taken by the practitioners themselves. It's ironic that a video of the sacrificing of animals is set to a soundtrack of festive klezmer music. How much more truly festive the occasion would be if it were done with money, instead of animals. Please join our End Chickens As Kaporos Rally on September 12 in Brooklyn, NY

The Alliance to End Chickens as Kaporos is an association of groups and individuals who seek to replace the use of chickens in Kaporos ceremonies with money or other non-animal symbols of atonement. The Alliance does not oppose Kaporos per se, only the cruel and unnecessary use of chickens in the ceremony.
