The custom of Kapparot was established after the destruction of the Second Temple as a substitute for the Scapegoat of Yom Kippur. Since we are unable to correct that level without the Temple, there is a personal, private substitute for sweetening the Judgments of Yesod. This can be done on the ninth day of the Ten Days of Repentance, which is on the level of Sephirat Yesod, and this too, can only be done in the early morning before dawn, a time that there’s grace in the Universe. The animal that represents the Judgments of Sephirat Yesod in the physical world is the rooster.
In our time, where many who want to participate in the Kapparot practice, it is almost impossible to slaughter for everyone in such a short time. Therefore, it became customary that one of the rabbis makes the Kapparot Ceremony, in time, before dawn of the Yom Kippur’s Eve. The Ceremony is done for all the people who give their names and their special donation called Pidion (redeeming) KAPPAROT (of Atonement).
Rabbi Shaul Youdkevitch will perform the ceremony, on the eve of Yom Kippur according to the Kavanot (meditations) and custom of the Ariza”l, in Jerusalem.
The Pidion (redeeming) KAPPAROT (of Atonement) is 42 ILS per person.
Registration is till Friday, Sep. 25, 2020 at 3 pm Jerusalem time.
