A Passover seder feast for dogs features a unique take on the traditional Jewish holiday.
Evanger’s Dog and Cat Food Company of Wheeling, Ill., invites all dogs and their owners to participate in the seder for dogs, planned for Saturday, April 11 at the Wigglyville pet shop in Chicago’s Lakeview neighborhood.
The maker of natural pet food hosts the event as a way of promoting its line of kosher pet food. The evening revolves around a seder service, featuring a communal meal with complimentary kosher snacks for dogs.
In addition, there will be prizes for dogs who find the “Afikoman,” or hidden matzoh, and the singing of special holiday songs. Evanger’s makes a variety of pet food that’s endorsed by the Chicago Rabbinical Council, which helps Jewish pet owners keep a grain-free home during Passover.
The tradition continues this year from 6 to 8 p.m.
