Number 5 : Tzfat

The Ari Shul in Safed.Tzfat (Safed) sits on a mountain overlooking the Sea of Galilee, set like a jewel in a crown. Tzfat is considered one of the four “holy cites.” The others are Chevron (‘earth’), Yerushalayim (‘fire’), and Tiverya (‘water’). Tzfat is associated with the element of air, and “the air of the Holy Land makes one wise.” The Zohar, a primary source of Jewish mysticism, states that the air of tzfat is the purest in all of Israel. It is no coincidence that the holy Rabbi Yitzchak Luria, known as “the Ari”, revealed great depths of kabbalah while living in Tzfat. The Zohar also states that the Moshiach will come first to the Galilee, in the north of Israel; the Remaz, a main commentary on the Zohar, states unequivocally that this is referring to Tzfat!
