Blessing of the pets

More than a dozen dogs, a few stuffed toy animals and a tortoise were brought to the Oceanside Jewish Center on Sunday for the third annual service for the blessing of the pets. Every year during Sukkot, the weeklong Jewish biblical holiday of thanks, Rabbi Mark B. Greenspan organizes the annual pet blessing.
