Feed Your Soul in Safed

In Judaism, there are four Holy Cities in Israel – Jerusalem, Hebron, Safed, and Tiberias. This week, our friends at ISRAEL21c tell us more about Safed, and share a highlight of all the culture, art, and history that you can witness there:

Safed is considered the leading place in the world for Jewish art.

At least 30 galleries display the works of painters, sculptors, textile artists, potters, calligraphers, glassblowers, silversmiths, jewelers and scribes.

Many of the studios are situated in the cobblestoned Jewish Quarter of the Old City.

According to local resident Yosef Stepansky –a field archaeologist, researcher, lecturer, certified tour guide and author of four books about Safed and the Galilee — Safed has the best-preserved Jewish Quarter in the world.

“It looks very much as it did 200 and even 500 years ago,” Stepansky tells ISRAEL21c.
