mystical tour of tzfat
Discover Tzfat from top to bottom and inside out in the place where all the mysteries of Judaism are lying just below the surface. Through the stories of the Kabbalists, we will begin to understand the spirit of this quiet yet spiritually juiced town. From the largest Crusader fortress in Israel with a breathtaking view, to the old synagogues, and even a behind-the-scenes exploration of recent archeological findings of 16th century Tzfat in the heart of the Old City, we'll try to understand the vibe that pervaded (and still does pervade) Tzfat from its stones, buildings, stories, people, and ruach (spirit).
A great tour for everyone with some "oldies but goodies" of places you may have been but will learn about with new eyes and certainly some surprises for everyone with places I can almost guarantee you have yet to see.

These are just some of the many types of activities to choose from to get your taste of the Golan Heights.
