I’m going to preface this with the acknowledgement that I’m sorry if this is the wrong place to ask, I didn’t really know where else to go, if any of you know of a better place to ask I’m open to being directed there.
I will also start this with saying I’m not Jewish myself, or Christian, I’m not really any particular religion or spiritual path, and I was raised in an aggressively atheist bordering on antitheistic household.
Since I was very small I wanted a Noah’s Ark playset very badly because I had heard the story at some point, and because of my general lack of exposure to religion I mostly thought of it as a cool story about a guy who saved a bunch of animals, and also thought have a cool boat would be a great addition to my toy animal dramas. My parents refused to let me get one, not from them, not with my own money, not as gifts from relatives because it was a “religious toy” and I guess they thought that if I got what was to me just a boat with a bunch of animals I’d turn into an evil Bible thumper.
I’ve been an adult for a good while now and I still want a nice one to maybe use as a display piece, and to do something nice for the kid who was raised by extremely oppressive parents, let him have his little animal boat at long last.
I did a little research to see if this was also a story in the Jewish tradition and it does seem to be, and now I want to know if it’s possible to maybe get a handcrafted playset from a Jewish artist or craftsperson, since I worry that if I try to buy one from a Christian creator it my money might go on fund some anti-abortion or anti-lgbt cause, so are these playsets a thing in Jewish households? Can someone point me to someone who makes them?
Thank you to everyone who reads this for their time, I hope all of you have a very nice day.
