Newly Revised and Expanded Edition
The "Golden Era" of 16th-century Tsefat comes alive, that enthralling period when Torah giants like Rav Yosef Karo and the holy Arizal carved indelible pathways in the revealed and mystical Torah to guide all future generations.
The pioneering Chassidim and Perushim, who faced a seemingly unending whirlwind of deadly epidemics, vicious pogroms, abject poverty, and two devastating earthquakes, stagger our imagination with their remarkable endurance.
Tsefat captivates our imagination, and her cobblestone lanes and ancient synagogues intrigue us. Jews from the world over come to breathe her rarefied air and to pray by the graves of men who reached awesome spiritual heights while dwelling here.
The holy sparks of Tsefat merge with those of nearby Meron, each nourishing the other, and together they enthrall us, drawing us back again and again.
With photographs and maps, Tsefat: The Mystical City will add a new dimension to any visit to this ancient city.
New edition Includes 16 pages of color photos!
