Kaparot in Full Swing at the JEC

Students from both the JEC Lower School’s early childhood and elementary divisions as well as the Rav Teitz Mesivta Academy seized the unique opportunity of “shlugging kaparot” with live chickens ahead of Yom Kippur, males for the boys and females for the girls. Even several teachers got in on the action, and Rabbi Kramer used the occasion to educate students about the safe handling and care of the live birds.
