Safed has played a major role in the history of the Jewish religion and its spiritual essence. The city has seen great heights as well as tremendous difficulties. Today the small mountaintop town is, once again, a center of Jewish spirituality where visitors can explore the synagogues and historical sites of the town. A large and vibrant Artists Colony was established and some of Israel's best known artists and artisans make their homes in the city's expanding Artist Quarter. Opportunities for tourists have also expanded as travelers come to Safed to discover how the history, culture and spirituality of the city has impacted on the Jewish world.
It's possible to come to visit at any time but Shabbats and holidays are especially enjoyable occasions in which the town's synagogues and residents welcome visitors to join them in celebration. The yearly Klezmer Festival is also a popular time of year in which thousands of people come from throughout the world to enjoy the fun and excitement that the festival brings to the entire region.
There are a wide variety of amenities available to accommodate tourists of any budget or interest including accommodations, tours and opportunities for study and experience. There's even a Tzfat Treasure Hunt! There is also a range of popular knickknacks and clothing lines which enable people to enjoy the atmosphere of Safed wherever they may be.
