Jews believe that humans are more important than animals

Do Jews think that humans are more important than animals? Or do they think that an animal has just the same value as a human or does it have more? Share your thoughts!

I don't know what the Jewish people believe, but I certainly believe that my own species of more important to me then any other species. Aside from domesticated animals, that's what all creatures are programmed to feel; like their own species is of higher priority to them then any other species.

Most people do. The reason why humans are more important than animals is because we have the ability to reason. We also have the "gift" of "evil". This makes us more important in all the wrong ways.

I do not see where you are coming from with this statement. In my experience only do animal rightists (a la Coronado or Newkirk) seem to believe that animals are of greater importance than humans. Jews have always seemed just the opposite: while they do value human life, so do they value the lives of animals, but not more so! Nor are they like the Hindus of India who place greater importance on cows than on mankind. Jews do not eat those animals which they view as being unclean, and I cannot blame them for avoiding many such foods.

Yes humans are important than animals because it says in the Bible that man was to rule over all the animals.
