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.

  • מקום חובה! בית כנסת אבוהב הוא בית כנסת מהמאה ה-16 השוכן בלב העיר העתיקה של צפת. בית הכנסת קרוי על שמו של רבי יצחק אבוהב, מחבר הספר מנורת המאור, בקיר הדרומי, הפונה לירושלים, ממוקמים שלושה ארונות קודש. בארון הימני נמצא ספר תורה אשר נכתב על פי המסורת על ידי רבי יצחק אבוהב, ותלמידיו העלוהו לצפת. ספר זה הוא אחד מהעתיקים שבספרי התורה המצויים בצפת, ומוציאים אותו לקריאה בשלושה מועדים: ראש השנה, יום כיפור ושבועות. ספר נוסף אשר נמצא בבית הכנסת הוא ספרו של רבי סולימאן אוחנה, מקובל שעלה לצפת מפאס שבמרוקו והתחבר עם גורי האר"י.
