    P'sak?

    I would like to see a p’sak signed by Rabbonim of all communities as to whether this minhag should continue being performed as is in “bulk”, or whether this should be something that people should do privately, i.e. buy your own chickens from a farm.

    Here is one of their quotes on their facebook page against Kaporos:

    “Like some people say, we should have let hitler finish the job”

    NO NEED TO BE AFRAID

    Why is Shia Hecht all of a sudden getting cold feet.
    There is nothing to be concerned about.
    The judge has ruled in our favor, and will continue to do so iyh.
    There is no reason to stop doing the mitzvah b’ farhesyah

    Cold feet?

    Were you the one who just spent thousands of dollars on litigation? What is wrong with doing kapores by BR? There is no mitzva pirsumei nissa here.

    So we will be hiding behind tarps now!?

    Moving it means they have “won.” Should we cover our kippahs with a baseball cap, too?

    I just returned from kapporos in Bais Rivkah parking lot, and it was so smooth and well-organized — better than any kapporos I’ve ever experienced. Beautifully done, NCFJE!

    Rabbi H ain’t afraid. I’m not Chabbad, but I do understand that when the rabbi asked for people to “refrain from any interaction” you’d be the one iber-chacham explaining to these anti semitin that you won the case so there is no law breaking etc. there’s a famous thought that is not put into practice enough. It basically goes like this: better to do the right thing than to be right. Use your common sense, the good Rabbi sure did.

    Why Let Them Win?

    Why Let Them Win?

    Bad idea. Going undercover just empowers bullies. Kaporos should have been done outside, publicly, completely ignoring the anti-Jewish groups. What else are you going to start doing secretly? Because one ‘win’ will spur them on to another attack. This is not about kapparos, if you would just OPEN YOUR EYES you can see that it’s about everything we stand for. They are obssesed with us in an unhealthy way. You walk past them on the street and their conversation is always about us and the ‘insular community’ (and they are always loud enough so that the ‘insular ones’ will know… Read more »

    its not undercover. its just in private property.

    why is everyone getting so upset

    It doesn’t say anywhere that it has to be done in public so I don’t see any problem with taking a step back. Sometimes it’s not about winning or losing but being smart. I grew up bringing the chickens home and no one knew about it. We weren’t hiding we were just doing our own thing. Not everything you believe in needs to be shown to the world. Work on yourself and you won’t have so much time to think about if others’ decisions are correct.
