‘Wave money, not chickens': Mayim Bialik takes on a Rosh Hashanah ritual

Mayim Bialik is very vocal about both her commitment to Judaism and veganism. Now, in her critique of the Jewish new year tradition of kaparot, she gets to kill two birds with one stone (hehe).

The “Big Bang Theory” actress has taken to Facebook to share her views on the ritual, which involves swinging a chicken over one’s head. It is said that our sins are transferred to the poultry in the process.

The video is worth a watch—Rabbi Yonah Bookstein is very convincing. If you needed convincing.
