The city of Safed invites the public for a range of free activities during this Passover holiday, a press release on behalf of the city said.
The activities include abseiling from a suspended crane that will lift six people at each time at the square outside the Saray building, which houses the city’s cultural center.

The Saray building was built in the Ottoman times to host local rulers, the name means palace, other such buildings exist in Israeli cities in which the empire housed functionaries. 

The activities would also include a professional level bow and arrow arena for children, they will take place on April 24th between noon and 5 p.m.

Inside the Saray building children will be able to learn about Jewish history and culture using Virtual Reality technology in a special program created by the department of Jewish culture.  Taking place on the same date from 11 a.m. and 6 p.m. the program includes large-scale board games and is also free.

A free guided tour will depart at 11 a.m. daily from Davidka Square and visit the historical sites in the old city of Safed, sharing with the visitors the Kabalistic stories that made this city so important in 16th century Jewish culture.

Emek HaTkhelet Park will be open on Monday April 22 and offer visitors free horseback rides at a horse ranch near the recently re-opened nature spot.
