    Lovely old Synagogue with very interesting architecture and murals. We were lucky that it was opened as some of the other Syngagoues in town were closed to the public.  more »

    Who wants to pray during city holidays or just to visit and admire the synagogue, I recommend for a synagogue, located in the old city of Safed (signage exists). We stayed at Rimonim within 750 meters and it was very interesting for me and walk every day on foot through the artists ' Alley and pray in the historic synagogue. In addition to the prayers in the synagogue celebrations such as weddings and circumcision.

    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.

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.
