Suggested Move[edit]

I suggest this page be moved to Kaparot, in accordance with consensus achieved at Wikipedia:Naming conventions (Hebrew). If noone objects, I will move the page. --Eliyak T·C 19:30, 31 August 2006 (UTC)

I object, no consensus has been achieved, Ashkenazi Hebrew no worse than Sephardi Hebrew, so unless you're planning to move Humor to Humour or vice versa, do not move this article either. - CrazyRussian talk/email 20:18, 31 August 2006 (UTC)
UMAYN!!!!, Ah Guteneh Yor --Shaul avrom 14:00, 22 September 2006 (UTC) NU, so tell me something
I Object. Kapparos is now as much a Yiddish word as it is Hebrew. The custom is Ashkenazi (Sephardi Rabbis opposed the custom vociferously; i.e. Joseph Caro in Shulchan Aruch, et al.) and was certainly pronounced "Kapparos" for hundreds of years. And it's probably safe to say that most who still practice the ritual today say Kapparos not Kaparot. --Kotzker 02:41, 28 September 2006 (UTC)

Euphemization?[edit]

The lede says:

 "This is a practice in which a person waves a chicken around his or her head. The chickens are then given to the homeless or poor as an act of charity."

isn't that leaving something out? After the waving of the chicken around the head, that chicken's throat is being cut to bleed out.

I am sure this practice is followed by only some Jews, but still it seems dishonest to leave this part out and claim that no animal sacrifices are performed for 2000 years for lack of a temple. Gschadow (talk) 06:39, 3 September 2017 (UTC)

Dishonesty about charity[edit]

Reports show that most of these birds are thrown away, yet this article mentions charity numerous times. This seems very dishonest. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 98.101.127.210 (talk) 16:47, 27 December 2017 (UTC)
