(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."

(Machzor Yom Kippur)

Charity box chicken

Copyright 1993 by Avi Biran

Tzedakah box used for the specific Kaparot ritual on Yom Kippur (Day of Atonement). The traditional text of the blessing is engraved on the belt. The box combines the modern custom of using money for charity together with the symbol of the fowl that used to be slaughtered and given to the poor for their pre-fast meal. The functionality of the design enables the box to be opened by a spring action hidden in the wings. Money is dropped in through a slot beside the fowl's comb.

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