and as a proud Jew, I think that a lot of the reasons this Rabbi was able to keep it civil was bc he wasn’t arguing based off of his feelings, he brought in sources from the Torah that we need to kill animals in the least painful way

It was so nice to see a respectful dialogue going on, but I feel that the issue with Kapparot is not when the animals are treated respectfully but when it is done in such mass numbers that the chickens are malnourished and there isnt enough time/energy to properly give the chickens to hungry people and then they are thrown away.

That’s not what they were discussing actually, as he said right at the beginning. They were discussing tzar baalei chaim.

Many animals (not just bugs) have to be killed in order to keep them from eating produce that ends up on grocery shelves…it is their food after all
