Can Your Dog Dance to Hava Negila on Lag b’Omer?

Lag b’omer Pet Talent Show and BBQ

Chabad of NW Metro Denver will be hosting a Dog Talent Show in conjunction with its Lag b’Omer BBQ. The event will take place this Thursday (May 7) from 5:00 -7:00 pm at the Big Dry Creek Park at 1700 W 128th Ave in Westminster. The park features kids play equipment, picnic shelters in case of inclement weather and a fenced-in dog park.

Even if your pet hasn’t mastered the hora, any level of pet talent will get your dog a prize. In addition to the Dog Talent Show the event will have a magic show, games and lot’s of delicious BBQ food.

While there is no known connection between Lag B’Omer and man’s best friend, Rabbi Benjy Brackman of Chabad of NW Metro Denver has been encouraged by the good vibes mixing the two has had with the community. “People are really excited to show off their dogs and we are looking forward to a really fun event” says Brackman.

Advanced reservations are appreciated and can be made online at  www.COJewish.com or by calling 720-984-5805.  Guests are welcome to bring their own blankets and chairs.

  1. Oy vey, this is so ridiculous, are you smoking too much pot? How about teaching Jews about the great tzaddikim like Rabbi Akiva and Rabbi Shimon Bar Yochai?

  2. it will be nice to see dogs dancing perhaps with choreographed steps.
