Sex & God & Rock & Roll
I have a Jewish friend that I've known since we were, oh, about 8 years old - and she's always had a pet dog in her house. She's allergic to cats. Her current dog companion is a pug named Max.
PS: That is one adorable meme.
Yes, at least in Conservative Judaism. One friend starts searching for another dog when the household canine census drops below four.
I do not know an Orthodox pet owner but I know several Conservatives. So I think it is probably possible. FWIWjimB
My brother certainly thinks so! (or have you forgotten that picture I sent you of Bailey, his Golden, just over a year ago? On his kitchen floor?)
I think it is okay for Jewish people to have a dog in the house, as long as they don't eat him.I see that over this side Pond there are companies that make and sell kosher dog food, so....
I don't think I've had an answer that Wiki would accept yet. You could all be referring to Jews who conveniently overlook the small print when it suits them - just like us, in fact.
"I Can Has Kosher Balliz . . . Jus Dont Sirkumsahz Me, Baal!"
I have Orthodox jewish friends with cats, but I can't think of any with dogs. I believe many find it too hard to follow the laws on the Sabbath and have a dog, although I've never heard it as being against halaka.
