Tzfat

The Jewish settlement in Tzfat dates back to the Temple period but Safed – pronounced “Tz-fat” in Hebrew – achieved fame and a reputation as the “City of Kabbalah” during the 16th century. Rabbis, Kabbalistic scholars and other Jews fled the Spanish Inquisition and made this their mountaintop home.
