TZEDAKAH BOX WITH KAPARAH (ATONEMENT) FOWL IN MIND
(Charity-Alms Box)

"This is offered in exchange for me; this is my ransom; this is my atonement. This money will go to charity and I shall find a long pleasant life of peace."



Copyright 1993 by Avi Biran

Tzedakah box used for specific Kaparot ritual on Yom Kipur (Day of Atonement). The traditional text of the blessing is engraved on the belt. A combination of modern custom of using money for charity instead of the old messy act of slaughtering a fowl. The functionalism of design enables the box to be opened by spring action hidden in the wings. Money is dropped through a hole beside the fowl's comb.

Sterling Silver, Semi precious stones, 4.5" x 5" x 7"

Limited addition of 100 - $2,000
