Today, we followed our class voyage to the blue alleyways of Tzfat. We started by going to see David Friedman.
He showed us of his amazing art pieces, and the intricate cabalistic meanings behind all his pieces. We learned about how gematria, shapes, colors, letters, space, and time all overlap in his spiritual masterpieces.
Then we hit the Jerusalem stone roads and with arms full, popped a few doors down into Steven's garden that our blessed teacher Morah Tamar created. This garden now reminds us not only Steven but also, Morah Tamar. We enjoyed much pizza, falafel, and even some ice cream, before walking around this ancient city to see important shuls, see local stores, and hear some tales.
