    They should clean their own house before starting up with others.

    but it is a nauseating experience.

    sure a few people have a clean, plump chicken handed to them and then taken away but for most there’s the pervasive stink, surrounded by hundreds of dying, starving, feces-covered chickens and putrid street. and there’s the slaughter line – like being inside a slaughter house.

    it may be a custom, and many may prefer to continue the custom even if it is physcially repulsive, but there’s nothing wrong with using tzedaka either.

    or do teshuva-this makes me sick. What a sick bunch of people. They worry more about animals than they do about people. Peta, yimach shemom, is a group whose main weapon are by trying to make people’s lives miserable and with absolute prusskeit. They take worst case scenario photos and claim that these pics are a reflection of the norm. An animal must be treated kindly and with respect according to the Torah. The same Torah has told us to use parchment for Tefillin and Mezuzos and meat of animals for Korbonois. Beware of these guys- they are dangerous and… Read more »

    Peta has used the images of the Holocaust -comparing chickens to victims of the holocaust and you give them free propaganda?

    Is PETA in the origami lessons business these days?

    hey Peta Punks-
    Please have a bagful of your money origami chickens ready.

    I’m sure each family in Crown Heights could use one of those as a Yom Tov gift.

    He is personally responsible for the tzoros of the Rubashkin family!

    He is not welcome here!!!

    Don’t you guys remember where in recent years, they slandered us, and took secret footage and soiled our good name? At least this year, they’re not coming undercover, and they’re making their agenda known to all.

    They’re trying to get in through trendiness, unfortunately for them, they friendly efforts, while they will definitely be noticed, will most likely not reap any benefits.

    Kaparos is something that is as jewish as gefilte fish, we’re not prepared to give it up, but we admire your honesty.

    If the think that after what they did to the rubashkin family and desecraded us they can come to ch.because if u mess with 1 of us u mess with all of us. They have no right coming to crown hights and believe me they are probably going to stop after 5 min of protesting because im sure ppl are not going to stand for it. we dont need them …the world doesnt need them. they are just of bored people with nothing at all to do with their lives only ruin others.

    to all those who want to use money

    to all those who want to use money

    OUR minhag is clearly with a chicken. Shluchim use much resources just to be able to get chickens for kapparos. Under no circumstance can you agree to use money unless you are physically unable to get chickens.

    I think that in honor of PETA’s visit to Crown Heights, we should have every single Crown Heightser at Kapporos even if you weren’t strict in the past.

    Don’t be moved by those who scoff. This din in Shulchan Aruch refers to these wackjobs!

    better idea
    Guest
    better idea

    maybe all the peta people want to turn themselves in to chickens so we can do kapporos on them, these sick people.

    it starts with chickens where does it end, it doesnt.

    when you see one of them look at what they are wearing, are they wearing any leather? if so they are wearing an animal, and do they know how it was treated?
    the clothes they are wearing was it made in a sweatshop? oops thats people that were abused they don’t care.

    quack jobs,

    "Guilt"
    Guest
    "Guilt"

    You don’t need to have any guilt for doing a mitzvah properly. Do some of us need to learn how to properly hold a chicken? Yes. Should we drop kaparos because of it? No.

    Trust me, PETA would be upset about this even if we were keeping chickens in individual fur-lined cages. They are upset that they are being shechted.

    The only ones who should feel guilty are those who are trying to stop Yidden from keeping Torah and mitzvos.

    What a genius idea!!!

    Let’s make signs tomorrow that say:

    “Please line up here to receive your free dollars and then go buy your chicken!” and place them near the Peta Punks that are handing out their origami arts and crafts.

    We could even take some pics and send them to the media and put them under some title like:

    “Hassidic Jews in Crown Heights receive funding from PETA to purchase chickens for Kapparot.”

    Guest
    I don't like PETA but...

    In some communities the chickens for kapporas are very expensive because kapporas is done as a fundraiser. I don’t blame anyone in this economy who uses money due to hardship. It is second best to chickens but it is allowed. It is also allowed to share chickens with others of the same gender. It is not the preferred way but it is permissible. I also think that it is fine to put the chicken in a box if handling it is a problem. I have also read that sometimes it is impossible to kasher all the chickens before Yom Kippur… Read more »

    Guest
    THEY HAVE A POINT!

    Many people who use chickens hold them in a cruel way. Clutching both wings with one hand, way too tight. Many times the wings break when they fling it around their head. It isnt malicious, but it is causing the animal pain. That is against Shulchan Aruch!

    I heard an interview on the radio a few weeks ago, where a prominent talk show host got a confession from a PETA leader to the effect that he steps on roaches in his house (though he was quick to add that his wife doesn’t). Some internet savvy guy can probably get the details and ask them about it.

    What kind of monsters are you if when you have an opportunity to be kind to animals, you just make fun of those who suggest it? Get over your holier than thou selves and have compassion for all living things. I’m sure that’s what God wants you to do anyway.
