An Ultra-Orthodox Jewish man swings a chicken over wife's head as part of the Kaparot ritual in Beit Shemesh, Israel, Monday, Sept. 13, 2021. Observant Jews believe the ritual transfers one's sins from the past year into the chicken, and is performed before the Day of Atonement, Yom Kippur, the holiest day in the Jewish year which starts at sundown Wednesday.
