Taylor Talks: Do Pets Go to Heaven?

Well it depends what you mean by heaven.The Talmud and the early sages teach that God does not deprive any creature of any rewards do to it. Animal reward is different from human reward because humans have free choice—meaning they can make moral decisions, and are therefore more worthy of actual reward or punishment. At the same time, every creature is created with a purpose, and that entity’s spirit can be uplifted to the heavenly realms. Rabbi Pinchas Taylor concisely lays out the role of animals in this short video.
