Tzfat, by Eliel Safran

Today, we followed our class voyage to the blue alleyways of Tzfat. We started by going to see David Friedman

He showed us of his amazing art pieces, and the intricate cabalistic meanings behind all his pieces.  We learned about how gematria, shapes, colors, letters, space, and time all overlap in his spiritual masterpieces. 

Then we hit the Jerusalem stone roads and with arms full, popped a few doors down into Steven's garden that our blessed teacher Morah Tamar created. This garden now reminds us not only Steven but also, Morah Tamar. We enjoyed much pizza, falafel, and even some ice cream, before walking around this ancient city to see important shuls, see local stores, and hear some tales.

At Sofer Stam, where we learned about Hebrew caligraphy (Tzfat)


  1. Tzfat is an incredible place! Truly like no other in the world.

  2. Nice, Eliel! I feel like I'm right there with you. Such good writing. :) Thanks, everyone, for taking time out of your busy schedule to write blog posts. I know it's hard... but we parents and other family members need the low-down, so it is well worth the effort!
