The Rodef Shalom Biblical Botanical Garden (0.3 acres) in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania's Shadyside section is a Biblical botanical garden. Opened and free to the public since 1987 from June 1 through September 15. It now displays more than 100 plants once grown in ancient Israel, including cedars, dates, figs, olives, and pomegranates. All are labeled with biblical verses.
The garden also includes a waterfall, desert, and a representation of the Jordan River from the Sea of Galilee to the Dead Sea. It produces a new show on ancient Near Eastern horticulture each summer. 2010 theme is What Shall I Wear Clothing from the Queen of Sheba to Michelle Obama with plantings and educational material. The garden is on the grounds of Rodef Shalom Temple, which houses Western Pennsylvania's oldest Jewish congregation, dating back to the 1840s.
