Happy Zoo Lover’s Day! Since the London Zoological Gardens were established in 1828, zoos have been a place to marvel at some of the most fascinating wild animals in the world, all in one place. Many zoos, however, have developed broader and more ambitious goals around education and conservation, engaging visitors in deeper ways with the issues that animals and their habitats may face in the wild.

3,300 YEAR-OLD EGYPTIAN COFFIN FOUND IN JEZREEL VALLEY-JERUSALEM POST

The coffin at Tel Shadud serves as evidence of Egyptian control of the Jezreel Valley in the Late Bronze Age, when pharaohs governed the country and Egyptian culture strongly influenced the Canaanite upper class.

Tel Shadud preserves the biblical name “Sarid,” and the city is mentioned in the Bible in the context of the settlement of the Tribes of Israel.

Sarid was included in the territory of the tribe of Zevulun, and became a border city, as written in the Book of Joshua.
