      Animal Sacrifice, Religion and the Law
      The Practice of Using Chickens as Kaporos: A Forum Free & Open to the Public

      Date: Thursday, June 12, 2014
      Time: 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.
      Location:
      House of the New York City Bar Association
      42 W 44th St

      In New York City each year, thousands of chickens are cruelly sacrificed by
      sectors of the Orthodox Jewish community in a ritual called kaporos. Experts on
      constitutional law, theology, and animal rights will discuss the reasons for the
      ritual, the Jewish principle of preventing tza'ar ba'alei chayim (unnecessary
      suffering of animals), Church of Lukumi Babalu Aye v. City of Hialeah, and local
      health laws. Please join us for this historic panel.
