Ultra Orthodox Jews slaughter chickens in bid to get rid of sins

Ultra-Orthodox Jews prepare for Yom Kippur with kaparot ritual.

The blood of this chicken will make neither this Orthodox Jew nor gentiles free from sins.

Ahead of Yom Kippur, ultra-Orthodox Jews slaughter white chickens as part of a ritual to cleanse themselves of sins from the past year.

It is believed that one transfers one’s sins from the past year into the chicken.

Kaparot is a custom connected to Yom Kippur, where white chickens are slaughtered as a symbolic gesture of atonement. The slaughtered chickens are then donated to the poor.

The kaparot ceremony is held before the Jewish holiday of Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement, which starts on Friday. Jews traditionally observe this holy day with a 25-hour period of fasting and intensive prayer.

My comment:

The Hebrew Bible demands sacrifice of blood for forgiveness of sins.  This sacrifice has to be done by priests inside the Temple in Jerusalem.

Since there is no Temple in Jerusalem, this kind of sacrifice is not valid. This is the problem for all who believe in Judaism. The Hebrew Bible also explains that God will make a New Covenant with his people, where He will forget their sins.

Why did God allow His temple to be destroyed?

Jesus has the answer. He went into the Holiest place, and offered His own blood as an atonement for sins. By the sacrifice of the only begotten Son of God of Israel , He brought an end to all blood sacrifices, Once and for all.

Jesus is our Yom Kippur. He has atoned not only for the sins of the Jews, but for people in all nations on the face of the Earth.

  1. Are all Jews who say they are Jews really Jews?

    REVELATION 2:9, The Lord God says; I know thy works….. and I know the blasphemy of them which say they are Jews, and ARE NOT, BUT ARE THE SYNAGOGUE OF SATAN.

    And why did Yeshua call the PHARISEES, you generations of serpents and vipers..? Matthew 12:34 … and –

    Matthew 23:33, You serpents, you generations of vipers, how can you escape the damnation of hell?

    Whoa!! strong words coming from the mouth of GOD, YESHUA MESSIAH HIMSELF.

    The only way to SALVATION is YESHUA meaning SALVATION or ONE WHO SAVES, and not by killing birds and animals for the atonement of sins.

    May God enlighten all who are spiritually blind.

  2. ANY GOD DOESNOT ALOOW BLOOD OR HE TELLES TO SACRIFICE INNOCENT ANIMALS OR BIRDS. THIS PRACTICE IS ONLY MADE BY HUMAN BEINGS. REMEMBER ONE DAY EVERY ONE HAS TO DIE. KILLING ANIMALS IS SIN AND GOD DOESNT ALLOW ANY ONE TO HIS DOOR. COME TO INDIA AND SEE WHERE WE HAVE LOTS OF SAINTS AND PERSON WHO WILL OPEN YOUR MIND FOR ENLIGHTMENT. ONLY IN HINDUS IN INDIA WE CAN MEET GOD THROUGH INNER JOUNERY . GOD IN EVERY HUMAN AND LIVING BEING. SACRIFICING DOESNT LEAD UR LIFE SMOOTH WAY. UR AGAIN COMMITING SIN BY KILLING ANIMALS OR BIRDS.

    1. SN Patil,

      Only Jesus Christ can save. This is the complete truth.

      John 3:16 says: For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.

      Romans 14:11 says: It is written: “‘As surely as I live,’ says the Lord, ‘every knee will bow before me; every tongue will confess to God.'”

      Christ’s coming is near. And again, he is the only one who can save.

      God Bless.

    2. Dear S.N. Patil.

      Shalom, and welcome to this site.

      If I am not mistaken, Chicken Curry is the national dish of India. I am sure some of your own Hindus must have “killed” this innocent animal.

      The Bible says that man can eat animals. Both Fish and Chicken, and even plants too.

    3. Dear Patil,

      Which saints are you talking about, I know and have seen on live TV shows from India these SAINTS (holy saints in your language) eat burning corpses at the Ghats of Banaras, many of them eat chicken and mutton on regular basis drinks alcohols on a daily basis and even sleep with women declaring their status Bharmachari (like a father in Christian). You can see any news papers these Saints are involved 10000… of SEX scandals) Not only the Moncks I have many friends (Sharmas, Vermas, even Bhardawajs and Aryas) who requests me to invite them on chicken mutton party at my home as their families do not eat non-veg and my town is a small town so they can’t go to a restaurant as most of non-veg restaurants are Muslim restaurants. And also you don’t need to invite a Jew to come India to see Hindu saints, they knows more than you about them, as Israelis visiting India particularly Rajasthan in huge amount round the year.

  3. Good point Ivar,

    BUTTER CHICKEN & TANDOORI CHICKEN is a favorite not only to Indians but to Europeans as well. And ..
    what about “mutton” (the Anglo Indian word for ‘goat meat’) Hindus eat this too – unless they are from the ‘Brahmin Caste’ who consider themselves the most superior above all other castes of India… Lol! These brahmins are the ancient Aryans who migrated to India.

    Dear S.N.Patil,

    No offense please but this is just for your understanding. Please note that the god of hinduism and the God of Israel is not the same. In Hinduism you have many gods and goddesses. The God of Israel is but ONE and he doesn’t have a goddess or a queen or any wife. Also the understanding that all gods-are-one-god is absolutely wrong. The only GOD who is the true God is the God of the Jews and Christians. Though He is called God, his name is not God but YAHVEH, this is an unique name and no other god is called by this particular name. YAHVEH is the only one who created Heaven and earth, mankind, and every living thing on land, air and in the sea. He is a living God. We don’t see Him, yet we know He exists. He had no begining and He has no end.

    Right now the world is in a turmoil, people say the world is going to end in 2012, but not so, nations will go into war with each other, there will be a lot of disasters … however, there will be ONE SAVIOR ultimately who will save this planet and many people from total destruction. This Savior is none other god than the GOD OF ISRAEL, The GOD of the Jews and Christians, Most people call Him ‘JESUS CHRIST’ but His real name is YESHUA meaning Savior, Salvation or One who Saves.

    I urge you to read the Bible and find the truth. It is a book of history that has repeated itself over and over again thru milleniums. This is a one book that has remained a BESTSELLER for milleniums and there is no such book in the entire world. This book is a book of instructions for every person’s life. You are not going to be doing any harm to yourself or anyone to read a book that will fill you with knowledge and understanding … So take a shot and may YESHUA enlighten you.

    Blessings

  4. I have a wonderful Jewish doctor who told me he prayed for me on Yom Kippur. Bless his heart. He never told me about chickens. But my doctor is not Orthodox either. However, he only eats Kosher.

    1. Shalom Sueliz1,

      Jews are very much for kosher foods and they religiously keep all rituals, but like Christians they also are divided into different sects. The Orthodox are more strict about eating kosher while the reform are not so.

      Bottomline: All religions are divided, the world (this planet our temporary home) is divided and Yeshuah said: A house that is divided can never stand. It’s about to give way and that’s why Yeshuah is coming soon to re-organize our lives and this entire planet.

      Baruch Haba B’shem Yeshua … Blessed is He Who comes in the name of YAHWEH.

      Be Blessed

  5. Hi Jes,

    Thanks for the comment. I actually buy Kosher meats whenever I can because I know they are cleaner than USDA meats. Many Kosher plants don’t need inspection because they are way above USDA standards. 🙂

    Maranatha! 🙂 Blessings back at you.

  6. and what about the muslems are they wronge or have a difirent god maybe (just a note and ia know you will not agree ) the god who created jesus and yusha and moses and all the other prophets is one and only who desirves to be worshiped and the othre is to be loved only and to the hindus come on man you worship cows and monky that cant even defend himself to (and to the jew we have lotes in common but you guys dont think about any other possibility that you may be wronge and your bible is Been distorted it has no mircal in it like koran do ) hope to think a littel before you answer…

  7. There is no book like Bible in the whole world, completely inspired by God from cover to cover. Bible is the only book that has the answer for all our questions. Jesus fulfilled more than 250 Bible prophecies in His first appearance as the Son of Man/Son of God. Many Bible prophecies are being fulfilled every year right before our eyes. If any one read/meditate the word of God (Bible) will be enlightened and will know the Truth and the Truth will set them free.

  8. WE ALL THINK WE KNOW GOD,WHO REALLY KNOWS,WHAT IS WRITTEN HAS BEEN CORRUPTED BY MAN TWISTED TO SUITE HIS OWN WANTS ALL RELIGION SERVES AN EXCUSE TO WAR,AND OPPRESSION ETC WE EVEN THINK WE HAVE A RIGHT TO KILL IN HIS NAME.WE ALL HAVE ARIGHT TO BELIEVE WHAT WE WISH OUR RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD IS PERSONAL OUR SOULS ARE HIS TO JUDGE NOT MAN.MANY RELIGIONS IE ISLAM,CATHOLICS,JEWS ETC HAVE PUT THEMSELVES ABOVE GOD,OUR WORLD IS IN KAOS..WARS CONSTANT IN THE MID EAST ALWAYS HAS BEEN,MOSTLY BECAUSE OF THE,MANY FRACTIONS OF THE CORE RELIGIONS,WE SAY AS A COLLECTIVE WE WANT PEACE WHAT A CROCKA,,ITS NOT GONNA HAPPEN ITS BEYOND OUR MORTAL CAPABILITYS AND BASE APE MENTALITY.

  9. PS SLOW DOWN WITH THE ‘POULTRY’ SACRIFICE YOU WILL PUT KFC OUT OF BUSINESS AND DO YOU REALLY THINK THAT GOD ASKS FOR THAT TYPE OF SACRIFICE HOW PETTY AN OFFERING TO GIVE.MAYBE YOU SHOULD BE PRACTITIONERS OF VOODOO .
