ASPCA’s Annual Blessing of the Animals

Posted December 10, 2012

Yesterday, Rabbi Rubinstein and Rabbi Salth teamed with Senior Minister Stephen Bauman and Christian clergy from Christ Church on Park Avenue for the ASPCA’s annual Blessing of the Animals.

Rabbi Rubinstein, a dog owner himself, spoke to the Daily News from the event.
