Description

Three explanations of the benefits of kapparos - inspiration to repent, paying a debt, and deflecting a decree. And five reasons to oppose the practice - absurdity, paganism, unintentional consecration, neveilah and paining animals. Geared toward a group including people without strong background in Torah text study.
