"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.

Sounds interesting.

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

Very interesting. I just read about how good Israel is on medicine and health care.
Happy evening!:-)
