Kaparot and Yom Kippur: Voodoo and Perjury in Judaism

Mea Shearim section of Jerusalem, October 5, 2011

By Michael Hoffman  

Yom Kippur, that glorious orgy of rabbinic self-congratulation, begins Friday evening, Oct. 7, whereby the western world will watch in awe as "pious Jews" beg God for forgiveness, strive for righteousness and, in the run-up to the holy day, transfer their sins to a chicken.

Say what? 

 It's called kaparot. It doesn't fit the misty, gauzy, Spielbergian image of Orthodox Judaism, does it? Talmudists shlugging (twirling) a chicken over their heads in the belief that by reciting the Mahzor prayers while doing so, they are transferring their sins to the chicken!

Kaparot is the pre-Yom Kippur voodoo that the media are reluctant to report. When they do report it they usually omit the twirling and the belief in sin transference to the unfortunate fowl. China's news agency, in covering the kaparot rites in Jerusalem this week, reduced them to nothing more than "the symbolic slaughter of chickens as an act of atonement."

Judaism's kaparot ritual is such a patently pagan rite that it has the power to shock even gullible goyim out of their hypnotic slumber. The first 40 seconds of this rare kaparot video features the actual chicken shlugging (the rest of the video shows believers dumping crumbs into the water, preceded by a cacophony of rabbinic clamor).

After the kaparot voodoo concludes, the perjurer's ceremony begins: on Yom Kippur the infamous rite of Kol Nidrei takes place, almost always explained away to the outside world as a blessed ritual of begging God for forgiveness for oaths that were violated, contracts that were broken and promises that were not kept in the past year.

The trouble is, that pious picture is a phony.

Kol Nidrei is actually a ceremony whereby: 1. all the perjury you will commit in the coming year and 2. all contracts you will sign and violate in the coming year, and 3. all the promises you will break in the coming year, are absolved, with no heavenly punishment accruing as a result. That's the actual reality of Yom Kippur's Kol Nidrei rite, and it's one reason why Yom Kippur is the best-attended of all of Judaism's synagogue ceremonies. Fraudsters like to have an edge and during Yom Kippur that entails making God a senior partner in the sting.

The truth about Yom Kippur's Kol Nidrei ritual is usually dismissed by the rabbis and their mouthpiece media as a "loathsome antisemitic canard." They hurl this accusation in the expectation that the public will not consult the documentation and will instead accept at face value the word of the godly rabbis and their American "news media."

The clever trick is that the lies that are retailed about Kol Nidrei are absolved by Kol Nidrei itself. It's a kind of invincible circuit that reinforces its own deceit. You have to pity people ensnared in this sordid charade of cajoling God into helping them cheat.

Little of this harsh reality will surface in the next few days, however. Instead, the corporate media will spout warm and fuzzy shibboleths about Yom Kippur (here, here and here) as part of the sly masquerade by which Judaism ascends ever higher over the West.

If this appalling quasi-druidic ceremony is a "loathsome antisemitic canard" (despite the irrefutable evidence to the contrary), then how reliable is the adamant and hysterical claim that "The Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion" is a nonsensical and outrageous forgery? Hmmm. Intriguing.

please don't insult Haitian Voodoo by comparing it to jewish satanism. Satanic ritual involves cruelty and death of a creature more weak and helpless, because it is god-like to support and nurture those more weak and helpless. It began with the first satanic ritual-circumcision = 'child sexual abuse' committed by abraham to his God-Satan. It continues with israelis killing Palestinian children-war is a satanic ritual-used by rich bankers-who are all satanists. The people of Voudon religion connect with God. Black people only resort to violence as a survival mechanism-they know right from wrong good from evil-jews do violence if either rich or poor-because they are all born sociopaths.

Abraham was not satanic, nor did he commit child sexual abuse. Black on black violence is hardly "survival." You are playing the rabbis' game when you call all jews violent. What a ridiculous post.

It's clear that the author of this piece knows NOTHING about the nature of Yom Kippur or Kapparos. You apply labels without understanding anything, but of course, that is typical and standard practice for those who hate the Jews.

To BTinBayswater

Your criticism is without substance. Tell us where you think we are wrong or how we have erred, don’t simply pontificate.

As for the “Jew haters,” those will be found among the followers of Chazal and the Talmud Bavli who oppress and regiment Judaic persons with thousands of useless, harmful and destructive rules.

Those who love Judaics seek to liberate them from this slavery.

Hey Michael Hoffman,...Excellent Post, I see the JIDF has arrived with their spurious argumentative bluster.
