Two Jewish boys watch while a Rabbi slaughters a chicken as they stand over metal bins used for koshering. The ritual, in which it is believed that one transfers one's sins from the past year into a chicken swung over the head, is performed before the Day of Atonement. The chicken is then slaughtered and given to charity. (AP Photo/Kevin Frayer)
