Kapporos- An Unholy Ritual- w/ Alliance to End Chickens as Kaporos members Karen Davis, PhD, Nora Constance Marino, Esq., and Rina Deych, Alliance to End Chickens as Kaporos
Please join us for an important conversation with UPC President Karen Davis, PhD; attorney for the Alliance to End Chickens as Kaporos, Nora Constance Marino, Esq.; and Alliance member and Lead Plaintiff, Rina Deych, to learn about the annual Kaporos ritual coming up in early October, 2022.
At this annual event, as many as 60,000 chickens will be cruelly slaughtered on the public streets of Brooklyn, NY. Not only is this a cruel nightmare for the baby birds who will be terrorized and killed, but it is a dangerous public health threat. Kaporos is essentially a wet market, like the wet market where Covid-19 originated, and poses a serious risk of spreading the current bird flu virus which is decimating birds worldwide and could at any moment mutate into a global human pandemic.
Hear from our expert panel about why this ritual takes place, how it violates Jewish law, their efforts to stop it from happening, and how the Alliance to End Chickens as Kaporos is helping the few survivors — over 700 birds were rescued in 2021—who manage to escape being killed every year and make their way to loving homes and sanctuaries. You can also find out how you can help these survivors directly.
