Artists, Musicians, Mystics, and More… in SFAT (SAFED)
If you love art and music, and especially if you love to study the scripture, Safed (pronounced ‘Sfat’) will feel like home to you. The ancient stone walls and paths take you through a section filled with memories of famous Rabbis and seekers throughout history. In a few hours you can see Rabbis, a certified scribe (sofer), school students, IDF soldiers on break, musicians carrying unusual harps and other instruments, artists, art galleries…
Blue doors are common, and associated with the understanding that blue is the color of heaven and we want heaven in our home! At one time, only Jerusalem could compete with the level of study in Sfat.
This is a one stop shop for those needing a Kosher scroll for their Mezuzah, or a Tefillin, or perhaps their name written in Hebrew… but don’t expect him to continue a conversation while he is writing.
You can also expect to see Yeshivas (bible classes), weavers, quaint restaurants, a winery (complete with tasting and hospitality), and an unbelievable rooftop view!
