New Ad Shows Hynes As A Kapparos Chicken


hynes-kapparosSome will call this “fowl play.” Others will say not to play chicken.

Either way, this is anything but pareve.

A new ad has DA Charles Hynes – who is running for reelection for Brooklyn district attorney – looking like a Kapparos chicken. The ad says underneath the picture in Hebrew, “It’s time to shlug Kapparos.”

Although the face of the person in the ad is covered by the chicken, it is clear from the hair, jacket, lapel pin, tie and posture that the individual is Hynes.

New York City Councilman David Greenfield, who has backed Hynes, responded to the Kapparos ad by calling it “appalling.” Greenfield told the NY Daily News that the ad implies the Hynes’ opponents wish to “see Joe Hynes killed in the ritual tradition of slaughtering chickens.”

The bottom of the ad, obviously in jest, says that it is sponsored by “The Tzaar Baalei Chaim Group.”

  1. Charles Hynes does no have our community’s needs in mind. He has done much to hurt our community.

    Oh yeah, what does this say about david.
    And what does this say about Matzav if they refuse to post this comment, again?

  2. I don’t know his opponent but I can tell you that District Attorney Hynes is a competent person and runs his office in a professional manner.

    He is familiar with all the “players” in the frum community as well as those in the non-frum community.

    Always look closely at those who are against a sitting District Attorney, especially a tough one like Hynes and you may find some shmutz on those who want to oust him.

    Remember, Crooks don’t like ‘cops’.
