An Ultra-Orthodox Jewish boy sells a chicken to be used in the Kaparot ceremony on Oct. 10, 2016, in Jerusalem, Israel. It is believed that the Jewish ritual, which involves swinging a live chicken above one's head, transfers the sins of the past year to the chicken, which is then slaughtered and traditionally given to the poor. It is performed before the Day of Atonement, or Yom Kippur, the most important day in the Jewish calendar, which this year will start on sunset on Oct. 11.
