Blessing of the pets
On Oct. 31, members of the Fort Worth and Tarrant County Jewish Community gathered on the back field of Congregation Ahavath Sholom to bless their pets and animals.
The congregation was of several North Texas synagogues that honored furry, feathery and scaly friends in honor of Parshat Noach. Rabbi Andrew Bloom and Cantor Shoshana Abrams led the blessing.
Pet food donations and monetary contributions were collected for Fort Worth’s Don’t Forget to Feed Me organization.
