A Jewish Brooklyn-based museum that displays expertly preserved, in true-to-life poses, taxidermied animals mentioned in the Torah, is set to close soon due to financial difficulties.
Rabbi Shaul Shimon Deutsch, owner of Torah Animal World, had been struggling for a while with the tough choice to sell his locale that has served as an educational venue for children since 2008. However, he realized that continuing to maintain the museum was not going to be affordable since it had not received many donations recently, which led him to place the building on the market for nearly $1 million.
"I tried to work through the terrible economy that we're in, but it just came to a point that we now had to make a decision to sell it. ... If a sponsor came along and helped us, we would not sell," said owner Rabbi Shaul Shimon Deutsch, according to the New York Post. more >>

Cecil Williams, 61, and his guide dog, Orlando, managed to avoid being killed thanks to Orlando's actions and Williams' quick thinking after they fell onto the subway tracks in Manhattan. Unfortunately, Williams' insurance will not pay for the care of Orlando when he retires, which will be soon, but people are rallying to Williams' side to help keep him and his companion together.
Williams said he felt faint while waiting for a train at the 125th St. station. Orlando, Williams' beloved guide dog, tried to prevent him from falling onto the tracks but was unable to do so and was taken onto the tracks as well. He was apparently unconscious, but Orlando kept licking his face in order to wake him up.
Orlando's efforts were successful, and Williams soon sat up. An official from the Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) arrived and told him to lie down in the trench. As a train approached, Williams and Orlando took safety and the conductor was able to slow the train but not come to a stop before rolling over the duo. Thankfully they were not hit by the train and were taken to the hospital for minor injuries from the fall. more >>
