Glimpses of Israel - Safed

by Joseph Hunting

Unlike Tel Aviv, Haifa or the other bustling cities of Israel, Safad seems to have been by-passed in the rush that has swept the rest of Israel into the hectic 80s of the 20th century.

Inevitably modern apartments so characteristic of other cities have begun to appear. Nevertheless Safad is still a photographer's and an artist's paradise.

Because of its altitude Safad is refreshing in Israel's summer but bracing if blanketed in snow during winter months.
