Please Sign Our End-Chickens-as-Kaporos Petition for 2011
Urge Kaporos Practitioners to Use Money Instead of Chickens

The Alliance to End Chickens as Kaporos (“atonements”) has created a new petition for 2011 urging three key rabbinical associations to oppose the cruel use of chickens in Kaporos rituals the week before Yom Kippur, the Jewish Day of Atonement (sunset Oct. 7 to sunset Oct. 8, 2011). Even if you signed our petition last year, PLEASE SIGN THIS ONE.

This year we’ve added a new association – Chabad-Lubavitch headquartered in Brooklyn – along with the new president of the Rabbinical Council of America in New York City. Please add your signature and your voice. We’ve prepared a Petition Letter for you to sign, and you can write a personal message as well. Each signature and message goes directly and immediately to the intended recipients. A short video of Kaporos chicken slaughter in Brooklyn in 2010 can be viewed at:

Thank you for speaking up for the chickens and for a compassionate Kaporos experience.
