Greetings from Tzfat

Welcome to Sfat

Spiritual Zfad

Tzfat, Safed, Sefat, Zefad, Tsfat, or Tsfas? or are you coming to Zfat? Perhaps you prefer to visit Zefas? Or maybe Zfad is more your cup of tea?
Whichever city you visit the ‘World Center of Jewish Spirituality’ is there to explore.
Sefat is one of the four Holy Cities in Israel and represents the ‘element’ of ‘Air’ that is ‘the spirit’ – connecting to the spiritual and the mystical side of Judasim – the Kabbalah.
Take in kabbalistic art from one of the many artists who live and work in Tzfat, go to a kabbalah class, or have mystical walking tour of the Old City and steep yourself in the spiritual and Kabbalistic mysteries of this holy city.

Feedback from Recent Visitors...

Hosting visitors is one of the greatest blessings of living in Tzfat, and we love to feature our guests' impressions of the holy city and their stay with us.
