A Blessing of the Animals

This weekend is Shabbat Noah in the Jewish calendar. The story of Noah’s Arc is the Torah portion for the service and, like Christian communities that hold a blessing of the animals in conjunction with St. Francis Day – honoring St. Francis of Assisi, the patron saint of animals, Jewish communities also perform an animal blessing ritual.

This morning’s multigenerational service will bless your companion critters; all species are welcome to attend on-line! May our Virtual Ark be filled with the diversity of Creation!
