Dear Friends,

Please join me Monday, October 26th from Noon to 1:00pm EDT for a free one-hour webinar hosted by the National Lawyers Guild Animal Rights Committee (NYC). The topic is the use of chickens in Kaporos – a violent atonement ritual – from several points of view.

I will discuss the animal cruelty inherent in using chickens for Kaporos-- from the crowding and filth of a factory farm, to the prolonged wait without food or water, to the rough handling that fragile wings cannot endure, to the final bloody massacre in the street.


  • Nora Constance Marino, Esq. who has argued Kaporos all the way up to the New York Court of Appeals
  • Rabbi Donn Gross of Congregation Bet Dovid, a vegan shul in New Jersey
  • Karen Davis, PhD, Founder and President of United Poultry Concerns
  • Dr. Ethan Ciment, DPM; neighbor and COVID survivor
  • Donny Moss, Founder of Their Turn, animal rights news media outlet
  • John Netzel, President of Peaceful Fields Sanctuary

Please register via Eventbrite.
