Ariel Ellis, '15: "Tzfat was really cool to see the people who live there including the schoolchildren, orthodox people, and the trendy girls. It was really nice to walk around the city because the architecture is so beautiful. I met one of the artists there: Doron Cohen. He shared with me the symbolism of his work and how long it takes to make. He's a silversmith. The ring he showed me had two chamsas facing outwards It was designed like that because a downward chamsa wards away evil and an upward chamsa attracts positive energy."
