If you are going to do it with chickens, rather than with money, treat them nicely.
The chickens that are brought in are usually half-starved, dehydrated, and bald from stress.

Animal rights?
Guest
Animal rights?

They are a bunch of Anti Semites who wish to use animals as their excuse to swear and abuse a bunch of quiet simple jews trying to do our customs. The way they behaved (shrieking, swearing at children, rapping on the gates) these were not innocent animal loving people.
I am not sure how they found out it was being done at Beis Rivkah, I hope the police arrest them tonight.

There was a huge group of at least 30 “people” protesting at Beis Rivka, shrieking at the top of their lungs the most vile and disgusting attacks they could think of, like kids throwing a tantrum, and yelling the most vicious threats at women and children!! You would not recognize this as America in the 21st century.

These people are vile

Actually the chickens are fed a lot beforehand. Or at least where my whole community does it.

Humans or Animals?
Guest
Humans or Animals?

The chickens were very healthy. That’s not the issue. The issue is that they think humans and animals are sentient so we are the same. Without an objective moral law that differentiates, I might have made the same mistake. If only they/we were at the level of pre-Eitz Hadaas. Maybe they also shouldn’t eat plants either, since we all come from some prebiotic ancestor. I think that the machlokes haposkim (Rema, Beis Yosef) should be taught to boys and girls from grade 9. We need to see the depth of the issues (not the same ones the protesters are bringing)… Read more »

Don’t think these people are necessarily coming from far out of our area. . are some of the same people that are renting and buying from Jews that are so thrilled to get a nice price for their property. I hope the fuller ramifications of what they are doing.
