"Kapparot is a ancient Jewish ritual to save oneself from a harsh Heavenly decree by it being effected on another object.
In modern times, Kapparot is performed in the traditional form mostly in Haredi communities.
After reports of the mistreatment of chickens, Jewish animal rights organizations have begun to picket public observances of kapparot, particularly in Israel.
On my photos one can see this ritual in Jerusalem, September 2010."
