The Holy Kabalistic city of Zefat
Zefat is one of 4 Jewish holy cities in Israel and is located in the upper hills of the Galilee. Zefat was always considered over the centuries as the capital of Kabbalah in the world and was where one of its most prominent and well known teachers lived, Rabbi Shimon Bar Yohai, who wrote the main Kabbalah book known as The Zohar. Zohar means Splendor or Radiance. The book of The Zohar is widely regarded as the most important work of Kabbalah. It is a mystical commentary on the Torah (the five books of Moses), written by Rabbi Bar Yohai. It consists of a mystical discussion about the nature of God, the universe and its origins and structure, the nature of souls, sin, redemption, the tension between good and evil in the world, and the relationship between man and God.
