NCFJE: Avoid Kaporos Protestors

NCFJE is proud to bring back $5 subsidized-Kaporos made possible by the generosity of Rabbi Dovid Fisher and diamond mogul Mr. Morris Gad.

$5 Kaporos will take place on Sunday, 7 Tishrei/October 6th, at Bais Rivka Crown Street parking lot from 1:00 pm – 7:30 pm (or until supplies last.) For residents of the Crown Heights community only.

Kaporos on Erev Yom Kippur will be from 6 pm on Monday – 6 am on Tuesday. Shechita will begin at 9:30 pm. 


Certain anti-Jewish and anti-tradition forces have come to try and stop the Minhag of Kaporos with live chickens.

NCFJE, who sponsors the community Kaporos for decades, is going out of its way to make special efforts in order to ensure that the opposing forces will not affect the Kaporos minhag.

We urge members of the community to do Kaporos with women and children on Sunday at Bais Rivka and only adult men should do Kaporos with shechita on Monday night.

Beware: the protestors are there to instigate us to act improperly so they can catch it on camera. If any of the opposing forces try to provoke you, please refrain from any form of interaction. Rather focus on the Mitzva at hand, the chicken, the prayers and minhag.

NCFJE thanks the sponsors and the community and extends wishes for a G’mar Chasima Tovah, a Gut Yohr and an easy fast.
