What if animals could talk?
Posted: July 05, 2017

Ask any dog owner and they’ll tell you s/he is a “member of the family.” But are they really on the same level? On the one hand, we allow animals into our homes, our bedrooms and our most intimate moments, pouring out our affection on them during the quiet times of our days. We admire animals for their beauty, grace and the warmth they bring to our lives. At the same time, however, we also perceive ourselves as superior to animals. After all, only people were made in God’s image, says Jewish tradition. Humanity seems never to have quite settled on what animals mean to us or how we should treat them.
