The Holy City of Tsfat

Visiting some Kabbalistic Stumblers reminds me of my visit to Safat, Israel

According to the first chapter of Reishit
Chochmah, a mystical book written in Tsfat, Tsfat was the city were Yehoshua began
the systematic destruction of idol worship, preparing the Land of Canaan to become
the Land of Israel. Modern Tsfat dates back to the 16th century, when it was home
to many illustrious Jewish sages and mystics, including Rabbi
Josef Karo
whose Code of Jewish Law is definitive to this day, and the holy
Rabbi Yitzchak Luria who revealed great depths of kabbalistic secrets from the
Zohar, the Book of Splendor, which in turn was written by the holy Rabbi
Shimon bar Yochai
in nearby Meron.
