Judaism Dog Names in Pop Culture
The daughter of Esor Ben-Sorek owned a dog she called Justice (a fitting name because she is a lawyer). The dog was a beloved member of the family for 13 years. At every family gathering, the mixed breed (half Doberman and half German Shepherd) would participate. The gentle dog was not perfect, she would often jump on people and lick in a quest for affection, but overall she was a good dog who was very well-loved.
Esor Ben-Sorek calls Justice 'every bit a Jewish dog'. She knew that when the Shabbat or Yom Tov candles were lit it was time to run over to the table and sit in silence until the Kiddush and hamotzi were completed. The sweet dog would even wait for her slice of challah. Once the Shabbat ended, Justice knew to sit quietly during the chant of the Havdalah prayers. At the end of the prayers, she would receive the last of the Shabbat challah. She was a complete Jewish dog who shared every Shabbat and holiday observance with her beloved family.
Dogs can and do become a part of the family in every way. If a canine is a member of a Jewish family then the dog learns the traditions and beliefs to the point of even practicing all traditions. Justice was an example of the perfect Jewish dog.
