👇This is a Repost from @wish_i.d_gone_vegan_earlier ・・・ JEWISH LAW~DONATE MONEY INSTEAD OF KILL. Late is better than never for Knowledge so here you are. #YomKippur #Kaporos Started Oct.11th. and Ended Oct.12th #AnimalRights campaigners have clashed with members of the #Orthodox #Jewish community on the streets of #NewYorkCity over the #killing of tens of thousands of #chickens during a #JewishRitual . Demonstrators were calling for an end to annual the slaughter of the poultry for Kaporos in the run up to the holiest day in the #Judaism calendar - Yom Kippur. The ritual dictates that believers "swing a live bird over their head three times while reciting prayers to God to cleanse them of their sins by transferring them to the animal. The #chicken 's throat is then slit with the meat donated to the poor" But animal rights groups, who claims as many as 50,000 #animals were due to be killed over Sunday & Monday evenings #DENOUNCED the practice as '#disgraceful ' & lined the streets in #CrownHeights , #Brooklyn to #protest against the ritual. In one photo an #OrthodoxJew was seen aggressively giving the finger to activist #RinaDeych as she films him performing the ritual. She told the #Dailynews she was trying to persuade people that they could follow Jewish law by donating money instead of killing chickens when she was approached by the man. '(Another) man tried to put a poor, tortured chicken on my head & two others cursed at me,' she said, adding that the street was left with 'feces and feathers were everywhere on a public sidewalk & the stench was overpowering.' One activist later wrote on Facebook she had 'rescued' two chickens from the slaughter. The protest comes just days after a group of Brooklyn residents LOST THEIR COURT BATTLE to try & BAN the 2,000-year-old ritual over fears it was #inhuman & #unsanitary , the #NewYorkPost reported. The Alliance to End Chickens as Kaporos had attempted to gain an injunction against the ceremony in state Supreme Court, arguing it had grown into a 'carnival-like & chaotic public nuisance.' They also alleged that the dead birds were not donated to the poor but were instead left to rot.
