The ancient city is home to numerous active synagogues as well as galleries and workshops displaying the work of local craftsmen.
The city is known for being the worldwide center for the dissemination of the secret teachings of the Kabbalah.

It is located 900 meters above sea level, on top of one of the mountains of Upper Galilee. The view is amazing, with the Lake Tiberias in the southeast, the Mediterranean Sea in the west, and the snow-capped Mount Hermon in the north.
