About
Did you know that, Tzfat is the capital of Kabbalah? For millennium, the Kabbalah was kept secret. Only members of an exclusive secret society had access to this information. In Tzfat, during the mid 1500's Rabbi Issac Luria, known at the Ari (lion), proclaimed that the time has come to "publicize this wisdom". While in Tzfat, don't miss exploring it's greatest contribution to society. SpirX offers a unique intensive interaction discussion on Kabbalah.

If you came to Sefad to understand the place as the cradle of modern Kabbalah and you want to feel the holiness and uniqueness of the place, I can think of no better guide than Rabbi Kopel. He knows all about the buildings, the Torah scrolls, and the adornments of the synagogue buildings, but the real joy is learning about the lives of the great Kabbalists and scholars who elevated the city to historic status. His knowledge is deep and vast and based on personal experience. If you want to go the third step, past the historical, ask Rabbi Kopel about the essential teachings of Kabbalah. He is generous with his knowledge. Wear comfortable shoes.

I cannot recommend this tour enough. Every minute of the tour was valuable and meaningful! I truly gained a different understanding of what makes Tzfat a mystical city and felt a deeper connection to it at the end. Also, Rabbi Kaplan was careful to point out all those places we should go without him after the tour where we wouldn't need a guide and in doing so helped us not only to find other attractions in Tzfat but also to maximize the time of our tour.

My favourite part of the Kabbalah walk was the Kabbalah information share by Rabbi Kople as we visited the Kabbalah Quarter of the ancient city of Tzfat. The towering concepts were easily understood and they illuminated our minds and hearts. The $45 fee was tremendous value compared to the hundreds of dollars I’ve spent on Kabbalah books and classes. I would recommend this educational walk to anyone interested in Kabbalah history and Kabbalah inspiration.

Rabbi Shmuel skillfully assessed our family's background, interests, and questions. Throughout the tour he made sure to specifically highlight our personal connection points within the amazing Tzfat experience. Kabbalah is so tough to explain and even harder to make it meaningful in 90 minutes. This tour really delivered

This was such an amazing experience. I didn't realize how much the ideas of Kabbalah meant to me till I joined this activity. It will blow your mind! I don't understand how people could come to Tzfat and not have a Kabbalah experience.

Rabbi Kopel did an amazing job with this tour. He was very personal and down to earth and spoke to the level of knowledge of our family. He is extremely knowledgeable about the historic, spiritual, and religious aspects of the city. He did an amazing job of tying how the Kabalah in Judaism can be used in our lives. He also showed us some historically significant landmarks that are important for Judaism. I would highly recommend Rabbi Kopel if you want to learn about Tzfat, Judaism, and Kaballah.

Rabbi Shmuel gave a very comprehensive tour of Zfat and the synagogues. He also gave an excellent explanation of Kabbalah and mysticism. Would highly recommend.
