Using Money for Kaparot

bygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Kaparot is an ancient ritual we do in preparation for Yom Kippur. Kaparot can be done any time between Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur. We ask God that if we were destined to be the recipients of harsh decrees in the New Year, may they be transferred to the money used in the ceremony which is destined for tzedakah, charity for those in need.

Please use money in place of electric Bird scooters or live chickens for Kaparot! Our sages long ago said that Kaparot can be done with money which is then given to tzedakah. Shana Tova, may you be blessed with a sweet, healthy and joyous New Year!
