The Biblical Museum of Natural History

The Biblical Museum of Natural History A hands-on museum of Torah and natural history for visitors of all ages, showcasing the animals, birds, reptiles & insects of the Bible and the Talmud
(33)

The Biblical Museum of Natural History is a unique institution that is part zoo, part natural history museum, and part Jewish education center. It showcases the mammals, birds, reptiles, amphibians and insects of Scripture, as well as related zoological topics from the Talmud. The large species are exhibited as taxidermy specimens, while live exhibits are maintained for smaller species, and there are also a large number of biological artifacts of religious significance. Through the exhibits, visitors learn how to identify the animals of Scripture, the symbolism of animals in Scripture and Midrash, lessons in Jewish values, law and history, and the natural history of the Land of Israel. "The Biblical Museum of Natural History connected us both to Nature and to Tanach (and Chazal) in ways our modern lives often don't allow. The tour also reminds us of the rich wildlife that used to roam Israel-- even as we celebrate the country's renewal and resettlement, a museum like this reminds us of a lost world, in which daily life could involve encounters with lions, bears, jackals, leopards, and more. It's Torah, it's Nature, it's an enjoyable, informative, and illuminating experience for family members of all ages!" - Rabbi Gidon Rothstein מוזיאון הטבע התנ"כי הינו מוסד ייחודי שהוא בחלקו גן חיות, חלקו מוזיאון טבע, וגם מרכז חינוכי ייחודי. המוזיאון מציג את היונקים, ציפורים, זוחלים, דו-חיים, וחרקים המופיעים בתנ"ך, וכן את הנושאים הזואולוגיים המקבילים מן התלמוד. בעלי חיים גדולים מוצגים כפוחלצים, ובעלי חיים קטנים יותר מוצגים חיים. כמו כן ישנם גם ממצאים מן החי בעלי משמעות דתית. דרך המוצגים, לומדים המבקרים לזהות את חיות התנ"ך, הסמליות שבחיות התנ"ך והמדרש, תובנות בערכים, משפט והיסטוריה יהודיים- וכן בהיסטוריית הטבע של ארץ ישראל. מוזיאון הטבע התנ"כי מקבל מבקרים בתיאום מראש. סיור מודרך בין המוצגים תהיה חוויה נפלאה ומעניינת!

Mission: Throughout history, the natural world has filled people with great awe and wonder. While today’s world frequently places barriers between us and nature, for our predecessors in Biblical times the encounter with nature was very real and direct, an integral and inescapable part of everyday life. The narratives of the Torah reflect that reality and abound with references to the animal kingdom as well as other features of the natural world. By experiencing what these verses refer to, first-hand and in the flesh, not only do we open up a window to life in Biblical times, but we are able to unlock much of the beauty, meaning and symbolism embedded within Scripture, Midrash and Talmud. We also gain a deeper appreciation for the land of Israel, whose flora, fauna and landscapes served as the inspirational backdrop for so much of the Biblical narrative. The goal of the Biblical Museum of Natural History is to take us beyond the text, beyond the classroom, offering an interactive, hands-on experience of the natural world of the Bible, in order to make the Biblical texts and Torah tradition come alive. The Museum collection, which includes both live and non-live (taxidermy) exhibits, explained in colorful detail via our personal guided tours, provides an educational encounter that is designed to inspire and educate visitors, young and old, for generations to come.

"And the Children of Israel came into the Sea on the Land" - If they were in the sea, why "on the Land," and if on land why "into the Sea?"... Explained Rabbi Nehorai: If a Daughter of Israel was crossing [in the dry land created by the absence of the] Sea, and her child was in her hand, and she cried and stretched out her hand she could reach into the Sea and grab an apple or pomegranate to give to him." - Midrash Shemot Rabbah 21:10.

The Maharal of Prague had initiated a custom for Shabbat Shirah, in which he would gather the children of the community into the yard of the Altnoishul and teach them about the splitting of the sea and how the birds had joined in song with the children of Israel, and how then they would pick from the fruit growing on the trees in the sea and feed the singing birds.

The prophet Amos, presenting a metaphor for there always being a reason for God’s actions, speaks of how a lion will only roar when he has reason to do so – namely, having successfully hunted his quarry: Does a lion roar in the forest, when he has no prey? Does a young lion cry out from his lair, if he has caught nothing? (Amos 3:4)
This notion is reflected in a statement in the Talmud describing the excesses of behavior that result from being overly satiated:
Moses said before the Holy One: Master of the Universe, it was due to the silver and gold that You bestowed upon Israel until they said “Enough!” that caused them to make the Golden Calf. The School of R. Yannai noted: A lion does not maul and roar (nohem) from having a trough of hay, but from having a dish of meat. (Berakhot 32a).

𝐆𝐫𝐨𝐮𝐧𝐝𝐡𝐨𝐠 𝐝𝐚𝐲!

According to American folklore, a groundhog first emerges from hibernation on February 2nd. If it is cloudy, then spring will come early; if it is sunny, the groundhog will supposedly see its shadow and retreat back into its burrow, and the winter weather will continue for six more weeks.

Amazingly, the groundhog's hibernation is actually mentioned in the Midrash - at least, in the view of some.
"And the Lord God cast a slumber (tardemah) upon him" (Gen. 2:21)... Rav said: There are three types of slumber: that of sleep (shenah), that of prophecy, and that of marmita... (Midrash Rabbah, Bereishis 17:5)

When the girls of Nishmat, The Jeanie Schottenstein Center for Advanced Torah Study For Women came for a visit this week, we were largely surprised and pleased to see how comfortable they were with handling our exotic animals!

"One verse says, 'and the river swarmed with frogs' (in the plural) and another verse says, 'and the frog came up' (in the singular)! Rabbi Akiva said: There was one frog, and the Egyptians were beating it, and many frogs showered from it" (Midrash Tanchuma, va’era 14).

Incredibly, the Surinam toad, also known as the pipa toad, gives birth by showering its babies from its back! Watch this video for one of the most extraordinary phenomena in the natural world that you've ever seen.

𝐍𝐨, 𝐧𝐨𝐭 𝐚 𝐟𝐨𝐮𝐫-𝐥𝐞𝐠𝐠𝐞𝐝 𝐬𝐧𝐚𝐤𝐞!
This is our blue-tongued skink!
Skinks are lizards belonging to the family Scincidae and the infraorder Scincomorpha. With more than 1,500 described species, the Scincidae are one of the most diverse families of lizards.

Skinks look like true lizards, but most species have no pronounced neck, and their legs are relatively small; several genera (e.g., Typhlosaurus) have no limbs at all. This isn't true for all Skinks however, as some species such as the Red Eyed Crocodile Skink have a head that is very distinguished from the body. These lizards also have legs that are relatively proportional to their body size.

According to some opinions, the skink is identified as the 𝑐ℎ𝑜𝑚𝑒𝑡 חומט, one of the 𝑠ℎ𝑒𝑚𝑜𝑛𝑎 𝑠ℎ𝑒𝑟𝑎𝑡𝑧𝑖𝑚 - the 8 creepy crawlers that when dead transfer impurity upon being touched.

"From when may one recite the Shema prayer in the morning? . . . R. Meir said: From when one can distinguish between a wolf and a dog." (Berakhot 9b).
Dawn is the time when wolves appear. In a prominent work on wolf biology and lore by Barry Lopez, it is noted that this feature of wolf behavior is so striking as to form a basis for the wolf ’s symbolism: “From classical times he had been a symbol of things in transit.
He was a twilight hunter, seen at dawn and dusk.” For further discussion, see the The Torah Encyclopedia of the Animal Kingdom, available on our website.
