Kapparot Ceremony Explained

By RABBI SAMUEL FOX

(Copyright 1980, JTA,

Inc.)
The "kapparot" ceremony
is one which many Jews per-
form on the night before
Yom Kippur or on the morn-
ing before Yom Kippur.
Originally, people took a
white fowl swinging it alive
over one's head pronounc-
ing a formula stating "This
is my forgiveness. This is
my atonement. This is my
substitute . . . This fowl will
be killed Soon and I will pro-
ceed to a good long life . . ."
Some Jews use coins instead
of the fowl and give the
coins to charity.
This ceremony dates at
least as far back as the
Ninth Century. Some
sources claim that it stems
from the scapegoat cere-
mony once performed in the
ancient temple whereby a
goat (Azazel) was used over
which the priest confessed
the sins of his people and
which was later taken to the
wilderness and stoned be-
fore being thrown over the

cliff (Leviticus 16:9).
'The Talmud relates a
similar ceremony where a
pot of greenery was thrown
into the river on the eve of
the New Year's holiday
while its owner declared it
to be a substitute for him
before the bar of judgment.

Soviet Jewry's
Plight Focus
of Committee

NEW YORK (JTA) —
Burton Levinson, chairman
of the National Conference
on Soviet Jewry, announced
the creation of a special
"Crisis Committee" to deal
with a critical situation fac-
ing Jewish emigration from
the Soviet Union. He also
announced the appointment
of Richard Maass, former
NCSJ chairman, to chair
the committee.
Levinson said the rate of
Jewish emigration from the
Soviet Union has been
slashed to about half of its
1979 level, and new restric-
tions have prevented
thousands from applying.
Maass said the committee
will formulate a plan of ac-
tion to sensitize the Ameri-
can people to the critical
plight facing Soviet Jews
who wish to emigrate.
