Consumer Kashrut Alerts

The following public notice is from Hakhel Community Awareness Bulletin and the Kosher Information Center, relating to Kaporos on September 5, 2007.

It is the recommendation of the KIC with the approval and urging of Gedolai Torah, that the following guidelines for live chicken kaporos be instituted:
Every Kaporo center be under a reliable Hashgacha, be it a Kehila or a recognized individual Rav. This entails the following responsibilities:

  • Treatment of the chickens to minimize tzar baalay chaim.
  • Proper handling of chickens to prevent problems that may cause treifos.
  • The Schechita
  • The Bedika
  • Kashering
  • Final distribution to aniyim/tzedakah institutions.
  • Adequate control that live chickens are not being reused for other Kaporos.
  • Enforcement of the proper separation of men and women, during the procedures is encouraged.
For more information call Rabbi Moshe Weiner at 917-562-2712.
