Attractions

Safed

Safed is one of the four holiest cities of Israel. Here you can feel and see the Golden Age of Safed, find out what the wise Jews who lived in Safed are famous for. Well-known Ashkenazi Ari Synagogue and Abu Haba are available for your attention. Visit the ancient crusader fortress built on top of a mountain. You will see the mysterious wonders of the city here.

Synagogue Ha Ari in Safed

In the center of the ancient Jewish quarter of Safed is a synagogue named after ARI. ARI is one of the remarkable personalities  whose represents Safed, his history and the history of the doctrine called bondage.  ARI is an abbreviation. His name was Yitzhak bar Shlomo Luria Ashkenazi, and he went down in history under various names: Holy Leo Safed, Adoneinu Rabbi Yitzhak, ARIZAL. But it became habitual to call him simply ARI.

This is the oldest synagogue of the city, and it existed in the Mamluk era (13-15 centuries), before the advent of the ARI in Safed. Then this synagogue was called the Synagogue of the Prophet Eliyahu.

Massive architectural decorations on the facade of the building clearly indicate their medieval origin. The courtyard of the synagogue is planted with mulberry, lemon and apricot trees. On the outside, the entrance is decorated with a carved crossbar painted blue, and on both sides of the door are niches designed to light candles.

Rosh Pina

In northern Israel, nestled in a charming location, lies the small town of Rosh Pina. This romantic settlement has its origins in 1878 when a group of young volunteers decided to leave the city of Safed and establish a new agricultural community nearby. Over time, artists such as painters, photographers, musicians, and writers began to settle here, enriching the town's cultural atmosphere. Today, Rosh Pina boasts unique galleries that showcase the artistic talent of the area.
