Kapparot/Chicken-Swinging Ritual

Click on the button to begin viewing

PETA videos from 2005, 2006 and 2007 (10:00). In a ritual preceding Yom Kippur, many Orthodox Jews swing chickens around their heads while reciting a chant about transferring the punishment God would otherwise confer on them onto the birds. The chickens are then slaughtered, on or off the premises, or simply abandoned (often injured) without food or water or protection, or are thrown into garbage bags to suffocate.
