Not The Boston Tea Party

I saw this post on Mentalblog here regarding Kapporos held in Rabbi Pinchas Krinsky's backyard in Boston. The Boston Herald article appears here.

In a related story, also in the Boston Herald here, a neighbour of Rabbi Krinsky is complaining of the smell and the goings on during Kapporos at his home. Unfortunately the names of this neighbour and her husband appear to be Jewish...

These stories reminded me of the time, many years ago, when Yom Kippur was also on Monday. Kapporos on erev Yom Kippur was arranged by Reb Arel and held early Sunday morning in his backyard. At that time I was expecting the police to turn up due to the noise that the chickens were making. Maybe his neighbours were more understanding and tolerant.

Gmar Chasimah Tovah!
