תלמוד בבלי, מסכת סנהדרין, דף ק''ח:
'With lower, second, and third stories you shall make it [the ark].' We are taught: the lower level was for refuse, the middle level for animals, the upper level for people. [translation by Gideon Aronovich]
Suggested Discussion Questions:
What can we learn from this ordering of the levels of Noah's ark?
