Thousands of Orthodox Jews in Brooklyn, NY, are preparing to swing live chickens over their heads before Yom Kippur, symbolically transferring their sins to the chicken. The chicken is then slaughtered and donated to the poor for consumption. This practice is called ‘Kapparot,’ which literally means “atonement.” Using fish, money or chickens are acceptable methods of performing this expiation ritual. Using a live creature has the impact of allowing one to appreciate his or her own life and the life of the animal. A deep appreciation for animal life is fostered by seeing an animal slaughtered so that man can survive.

  •   1average_joe From the Hebrew book Isaiah- But he was wounded for our transgressions; he was crushed for our iniquities; upon him was the chastisement that brought us peace, and with his stripes we are healed. All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned—every one—to his own way; and the Lord has laid on him the iniquity of us all. He was oppressed, and he was afflicted, yet he opened not his mouth; like a lamb that is led to the slaughter, and like a sheep that before its shearers is silent, so he opened not his mouth. (Isaiah 53:5-7) who is Isaiah referring to?.... For God so loved the world that He gave His only Son so that whoever believes in Him will not perish but have eternal life. John 3:16. Jesus died for sinners, & we know ourselves to be sinners and we can trust in His atoning sacrifice alone. God bless. 2y
  •   1average_joe so Christ, having been offered once to bear the sins of many, will appear a second time, not to deal with sin but to save those who are eagerly waiting for him. (Hebrews 9:28) 2y
  •   lindawilgeroth You all don't get it the sin goes away. it does not past on into the chicken. Anyone who eats meat unless kosher is eating meat from an animal that was treated cruelly. The mitzvah (good deed) of feeding the poor is a G-D ly deed! Why hate on other religions? What happened to shall not judge? There is a whole lot of that going on here. 2y
  •   chatterbox4 Thank you I agree...people that are confused and insecure about what they believe in tend to criticize and bash other religions... #LOVEONEANOTHER 2y
  •   msmadmess Ah another bs ritual where an animal is traumatised before being killed just so a human can feel better about him/herself. The human race never fails to disappoint. 2y
