"This is my substitute. This is my compensation. This is my atonement. This money will go to charity
and I will go to a good, long and peaceful life."
The pre-Yom Kippur custom of kapparot involves waving a chicken, fish or sum of money over the head of each person in the family, which is later given to the poor. Our tradition teaches that we hope that in the merit of giving to tzedaka, we will be blessed with a good and pleasant year.
By donating to American Friends of Yad Eliezer/B'ezri's Kapparot program, you will brighten the lives of the poor this High Holiday season at the most effective level possible. Our scrupulous management and efficient means of distribution enable us to maintain limited overhead and administrative costs, so over 96% of funds go directly to needy families.
Alleviate their expenses, and bring relief and hope this new year, with your kapparot donation!
