These days dogs are vacationing at posh pet resorts, serving as ring bearers at weddings, and now they’re even having their faith celebrated. This video shows us the new trend of the bark mitzvah.
In this canine equivalent of the bar and bat mitzvah we celebrate a puppy’s journey into doghood. The pooches don’t need to recite any Hebrew, but they do get to wear adorable dog-sized yarmulkes and indulge in some cake. And that’s what’s important, right?
Not according to one rabbi who declares the whole ceremony “degrading,” but we say he needs to lighten up. How could anything so cute be wrong?
