By: Rabbi Shaul Shimon Deutsch, Director, The Living Torah Museum and TorahAnimal World.Parshas BeraishisHashem brought every animal to Adam to see what name he would give them. The Radak explains that a name is not simply a random word but rather a word that reflects thenature of the creature and its role in the total scheme of the universe. Just as names of  people had a profound connection to the essence of the person so too, Adam ki minhaAdama, Chava Eim Kol Chi… Adam had the ability to recognize the essence of everyanimal and name them accordingly perhaps as we know it today asThe Genetic Code.  As an example the bird called in the Torah Chasida named by Adam. The Gemora tells us“Why is it called a Chasida because it does kindness with its friends. A Chasida is a stork and its is kind only to its friends and not to other birds. Therefore it is listed in the Torahas one of the non-Kosher birds. Here we see how the word Chasida demonstrates itsnature.The Choled which is one of the Shomona Sherotzim (the eight animals that have a specialHalacha that one can only become Tomay – spiritually impure by physically touchingtheir carcasses). Rabbainu Yonah explains why is he called a Choled because he burrowsin the ground. There is a disagreement among Meforshim if the Choled is the Weasel or mole but these animals have these animals have this method of burrowing in the ground.Here again we see the connection between the word Choled and the action of burrowingwhich is called Choled.The Choach is one of the eight Sherotzim and Meforshim explain why is it called aChoach because it is the strongest of all lizards. According to Yehuda Feliks in his Sefer Hachai Ve-Hatzomayach Ba-Torah it is the monitor lizard that can kill a person.See here we have three examples how the name of the animal are directly connected withthe nature of the animal. This is what Meforshim mean when they explain thesignificance of Adam naming each animal based on the nature and character of eachanimal.The Living Torah Museum and Torah Animal World will be opened daily from 9:00 a.m. – 9:00 p.m. To See Torah Animal World any other time Please call 877-PLAN-A-TOUR 877-752-6286 Admission is $10 per person under 3 years old is free.
