The following text is said 3 times:

There are those who turn the atonement coins over their head 3 times

This is my substitute. This is my compensation. This is my atonement. This money will go to charity
And I will go to a good, long and peaceful life

After the ceremony, donate the kapparot money at the website, you can come back and use the coins for your personal use.


Some sat in darkness, in utter darkness, prisoners suffering in iron chains.

He brought them out of darkness, the utter darkness, and broke away their chains.

Some became fools through their rebellious ways and suffered affliction because of their iniquities.

They loathed all food and drew near the gates of death.

Then they cried to the Lord in their trouble, and he saved them from their distress.

He sent out his word and healed them; He rescued them from the grave.

Let them give thanks to the Lord for his unfailing love and his wonderful deeds for mankind.

If there be for him an angel, a mediator, one of the thousand, to declare to man what is right for him.

and he is merciful to him, and says, ‘Deliver him from going down into the pit; I have found a ransom.

The atonement mitzvah

It is a mitzvah to perform atonement before Yom Kippur, the atonement ceremony can be performed using a chicken or by donating money to a charity on Yom Kippur eve.

The mitzvah period

To begin with, the atonement mitzvah should be performed in the ten days of repentance – the days between Rosh Hashana and Yom Kippur.

Kapparot Online 2024 – How much to give per person?

In Jewish law, it is customary to give the equivalent of a chicken for each person in the household. A pregnant woman makes a donation for her fetus as well.
In practice, there are different customs, from those who give $18 per person (HAI in gematria), and those who give 10 times HAI, a sum of $180
It is right for every person to act according to their family’s tradition, and anyone giving charity is rewarded from above.

Atonement prayers said for another person

If the prayer is said for another person, one should say “this is your substitute, your compensation, your atonement”.

Family member who isn’t present at the moment?

The atonement mitzvah can be performed for someone who isn’t present.
In such a case, one should say “the substitute of [person’s name]”.

A person who has not observed the mitzvah in time

A person who has not observed the mitzvah on Yom Kippur eve should complete the atonement custom in Hohsana Rabba – the seventh day of Sukkot.
Since this day is considered to be a small Yom Kippur.

Giving atonement from tithe money (ma’aser)

Tithe money should not be used to observe the bulk of the atonement mitzvah.
But the addition beyond the minimum required can certainly be taken from tithe money.

The significance of Yom Kippur

Yom Kippur has the great virtue of being able to atone for sins, as the wise men of old said “the intensity of an atoning day”.
It is important to know that atonement is actually for transgressions between man and God, but when it comes to transgressions between man and his fellow man, there is no atonement until the other person is satisfied, and so one should always ask for forgiveness from anyone he fears he may have offended throughout the year.
