The most up-to-date examination of the Jewish tradition of concern for animals: tsa-ar balei chayim -- you may not cause sorrow to living creatures -- how this concept has functioned traditionally and how it functions today; what the Jewish position on animal rights is and what kinds of confusion surround the tradition. The book contains forty-one articles from classical and contemporary sources written by rabbis, doctors, veterinarians, conservationists, philosophers, historians and animal rights activists.
