Jews For Animals is a space for Jewish animal lovers

For some that love may stem from their relationship with their pets and for others it may be about their quest for creating a more just world where animals suffer less. I’m sure some of you care about animals from a purely emotional space, while others may be thinking about religious teachings. Whatever your connection is we want this to be a space for you.

Jews for Animals is a project of the Shamayim V’Aretz Institute, a force in the Jewish world that is putting animal welfare on the Jewish agenda
