by Rabbi Benji Levy

“The Torah is painfully aware that our perceived dominion over animals may easily lead us to practice cruelty, greed and destruction upon our helpless fellow creatures. Equally, it is concerned with inculcating the character traits of empathy and kindness within all of humanity. With the advantages and intelligence, we have over other species, comes great responsibility. Through commandments like this, relating to our behaviour towards animals, we are guided towards a life of care and concern to all creatures.”
