Something fishy at the National Library?

The Gottesman Family Israel Aquarium opened last week with a splash!


In honor of the exciting opening of the Gottesman Family Israel Aquarium at the Tisch Family Zoological Gardens, the National Library of Israel was proud to contribute a poster for the launch event featuring pictures of colorful sea creatures found in illuminations and illustrations from across our collection.


The David S. and Ruth L. Gottesman Family of New York are lead partners in the new National Library complex under construction, adjacent to the Knesset.  The Gottesman Family are also the lead partners in the new aquarium, the largest in the Middle East. The aquarium will showcase hundreds of species of fish and marine life (stingrays, sea urchins, sharks, and more!) from the Mediterranean, Red Sea and other bodies of water, in 33 tanks.

Congratulations to all involved in the creation and opening of the new aquarium.
