The Yosef Caro Synagogue

The Yosef Caro Synagogue

Located on "Beit Yosef" Lane, this synagogue is named after the compiler of the Shulchan Aruch (Code of Jewish Law).
The original structure was destroyed during the earthquakes that struck Tzfat in 1759 and 1837.

Above the entrance, there is an engraved stone commemorating the recent restoration projects.
According to tradition, the "Maggid" revealed himself to Rabbi Yosef Caro in the basement built under the synagogue, helping him in the composition of his important texts.

Miracles and wonders are connected with this basement, with sixteenth-century accounts retelling how voices were heard from its walls during the nights.
