Details

Please join our 4th annual street protest in
Brooklyn, NY against the cruel and needless use of chickens in Kaporos rituals.
This year we’re renting a “moving lit billboard” – a van with huge images
illuminated on the sides and the back.

An activist Hasidic Rabbi has generously
provided us with images, including one of himself tenderly holding a rooster,
an audio file to BROADCAST FROM THE VAN URGING PRACTITIONERS TO USE MONEY, NOT
CHICKENS, and translations of our messages into Hebrew along with English.

We know it is difficult to attend a demo where
animals are suffering and dying in front of us, but as hard as it is for us, it
is infinitely harder for the chickens, and we must be there for them and show
that we care.

Please read A Wing and A
Prayer ( http://upc-online.org/kaparos/a_wing_and_a_prayer.html
)for more information about the Kaporos (Kapparot) ritual. Please join us in
Brooklyn to let the chickens know we’re there for them.

Please watch our new 60-second video featuring
Rabbi Yonassan Gershom,

Heartfelt Plea for Mercy.

Many people have said this is the hardest demo
they have ever done. If people think
it's hard for us, imagine how hard it is for the chickens. Nothing will ever change unless we show up
and speak out against this horrific cruelty.
We need you. The chickens need
you.

Thank you,
