"For good, for a blessing, for healing, and for life"

.
Bar-Ilan University, Yad Ben-Zvi institute, and Shaare Zedek Hospital have put together a fascinating exhibit in the entrance hall of the hospital.
.
It is called Materia Medica in the History of Jerusalem.
.
Please enlarge the photo to read about this exhibit of traditional medical substances down through the ages.
.
I'll be showing you different examples over the coming weeks.

This looks like it was an interesting exhibit. Many of those things probably worked as well as the modern chemicals.
