    This is a jewish traditional ritual inwhich ones sins are transferred to a chicken at Yom Kipur eve. Most do not participate in it though:


    1. buying the hen

    2. Saying the prayer.

    3. Moving the hen around the head 3 times.

    I preferred not to add pictures showing the chicken slaughtered.
    More details about this ritual can be found here.

    Thanks for looking.
    Dani.

    That white-red heap in the background of the first photo ... makes me ... erm ... wonder!?!?!
    Underneath the last photo you mention the chicken being slaughtered ... and now I STILL wonder, and wonder even more: is that heap ... erm ... what I think it is?

    All the same: thank you for giving us some insight into your culture and traditions. Were there tourists around, too, who photographed the ceremonies? (Right edge of last photo makes me ask...)

    You got it right Corinna. According to the tradition the chicken should be given to the poor to eat, but I'm not sure they follow that part.

    Right again. There were quite a few people photographing there, some of which also participated in the ritual.

    Can't say I feel this is part of my culture.

    Thanks for commenting.
