The following is a message sent to Matzav.com by Liberty Science Center, with particular pertinence to readers who are kohanim:
Liberty Science Center has long been a favorite place for Jewish families seeking wholesome and fun science learning activities. The large numbers of guests we see here, especially at Pesach and Sukkos, attest to the trust your readers have in us.
We want everyone to know that from June to January, we will be hosting an exhibition called “Bodies Revealed.” The show features real human forms, organs and skeletons preserved for display and educational purposes. These are the same kinds used in medical schools, such as at the University of Michigan.
The show will be enclosed in a separate gallery on the fourth floor, so it will be in a closed -off space, but our Jewish visitors should know that it is here before they plan a visit during this time period. The specimens are expected to arrive in early June 2016 and will be completely out of the building by January 31, 2017.
We are announcing this now to offer complete transparency to members of the Jewish community and welcome any comments they may have.
