    Thank you to the sponsors.
    Shea make sure the cops keep those wacky protesters 50 feet away behind barricades. Last time they allowed them to enter the parking lot.

    very disturbing watching the pile of chickens that were being thrown out…what a waste of food and irresponsibility on the part of the sponsors not to make sure that the lessons of tzar baalei chaim and baal tashchis is just as important as the lessons of the kapparos chickens, especially when youngsters are watching how yiddishkeit in theory values animal life and Gds creations, and how these birds are being treated. Very sad.

    Thank u!

    Birds always die, and the heat complicates it. I clearly saw the chicken being given water and fed. i asked what happens to the dead ones – they get brought to a company that disposes of them properly – makes them into animal food ect. So they are not simply thrown out or wasted.
    Please dont make public acusations – if you have a concern-ask.
    May you have more “dan lekaf z’chus this year”

    There is a saying” don’t judge your friend until you reach ( sit ) in his place”
    I suggest next year you offer your services for the many weeks it takes to pull this mitzvah off the ground with all its challenges before you pass mean and uncalled for comments. Get involved and help make better what you didn’t like.
    Thank you Rabbi Jj Hecht Rabbi Hanoch Hecht, sponsors & NCFJE. My family had a great experience! Today Rabba

    For making this possible for my family. I am a single mom and generally can’t afford kaporas. My kids had fun and were so excited to do the mitzvah they learnt in school. They loved the new set up!

    Couldn’t have expressed it any better myself.
    Please let’s all be grateful that there are those who clearly are doing their very best to service us and uphold the mitzvah of kaporos.
    Thank you for all those responsible for making it happen.
    Gmar tov
    Easy fast , a good year for all & Peace
