  • A fantastic old-world Shul complete with intricate ceiling art and general decoration. Take your time around the place and really soak it in.  more »
  • We felt very welcome and nobody judged us for what we wore. We were able to sit and enjoy the beautiful wall paintings.  more »
  • This synagogue is a synagogue with an exciting fun maybe more simple décor. But I think it's a great synagogue.

Where to stay in Safed

Perhaps the most popular way to experience Safed when visiting for a day or two is to stay in a guesthouse. Small and often run by local families, guesthouses sit in the old town area and the artists' quarter and introduce visitors to the rhythm and traditions of the local life. Larger hotels can be found scattered around town, with some older mansions offering grand rooms and additional facilities, such as onsite restaurants.
