Horseback Riding & Animal Center

Pinat Chai Animal Center

Pinat Chai is where we teach about animal husbandry, the relationship animals have with kashrut, general animal care, and about animal connections in the Torah. We do this through hands-on interaction with our animals: horses, ponies, donkeys, goats, sheep, alpacas, chickens,and  tortoises.

Animal Center Programs:

  • Animals in the Torah: Study animals that are discussed in the Torah and learn why they are important to us today.
  • Animals and Kashrut: What does it mean to be kosher? What animals fall under kosher law?
  • Animal Husbandry: Learn about how to care for you animals according to Jewish law.
  • The Shofar: From the basic to the exotic, they come from animals- sample various shofrot while learning about the animals they come from, what makes it kosher, and the Torah connections
