Ascentof Safed is designed to be a place for relaxation, reflection, interaction,
and spiritual exploration, where you can grow and learn in your own way, at your
own pace, in an open atmosphere. You can experience a wide range of learning,
volunteer, creative, recreation and other opportunities at Ascent as well as in
the Old City of Tzfat.
We can help you create a personalized study plan,
you can join one of our weekend or weekday retreats, or you can come to relax
and attend study and meditation sessions at your leisure, while staying in our
great hostel with its spectacular views.
Traditionally, the first five commandments (believing in one G-d, the prohibition
of idol worship, not using G-d 's name inappropriately, keeping Shabbat and honoring
parents) are considered commandments between G-d and man, while the final five
(not to kill, commit adultery, steal, give false testimony and crave others' possessions)
are between man and man. Why is the fifth commandment of honoring our parents,
something at least ostensibly between man and man, in the first section?
