Apropos of your article “Opposition Builds Against Chicken-Swinging
Ritual” (Sept. 13), I would like to say how much I admire Rina Deych for her
work in trying to eliminate kapporot in the Orthodox world.
How a mother can say the chicken is “happy to help us” just proves how
blind people are to the suffering of others even the “sacred to God” lowly
fowl.
