Safed, the ancient and mystical pearl of northern Israel – home to the renowned Rabbis and Kabbala masters of ancient times and modern days, opens her doors in the most unique ways. One such door provides entrance to Beit Yosef Central, the distinctive and elegant events and conference hall housed in a renovated, 400-year-old building. The delicate balance of maintaining the historical integrity of the space while presenting amenities for today’s discerning public has been successfully accomplished in this intimate and captivating venue.
The five-minute walk from the Old City’s inspiring galleries and the short climb up the stepped lane leading to the entrance of Beit Yosef Central echo with history. As you leave the street, you enter an enchanted world of rich, warm leather and mahogany, Oriental carpets and antique lighting fixtures. As beautiful lyrics match a haunting melody, the blend of the ancient domed ceilings and comfortable, plush furnishings whisper elegance, intimacy, and graciousness.
No matter the occasion, Bar or Bat Mitzvah, Sheva Brachot, Brit Milah, workshop or conference, Beit Yosef Central offers the atmosphere and environment that envelops you and your guests. The spacious salon can easily be converted to a banquet hall where up to 70 guests can comfortably enjoy sumptuous fare, provided by our catering company or if you choose, you can have your own kosher chef or caterer take care of your meals. Of course it will be our pleasure to have servers are available should they be required. The large, uniquely designed kosher kitchen is fully stocked and includes:
- hot plate
- Shabbat urn
- plenty of counter space
- stovetop and oven
- two stainless steel sinks
- full-size refrigerator
Tucked quietly behind the salon area is a private room, comfortably fitted with a pull-out couch that sleeps two – a perfect repose for the host or newlyweds. A bathroom with a tub, shower and sink is adjacent to the space. There are two separate bathrooms for your guests’ use.
Beit Yosef Central is the perfect location for intimate occasions and small groups. Your guests can enjoy an overnight in one of the beautifully restored and decorated Beit Yosef zimmers. Then, you can all gather for meals and leisure time together at Beit Yosef Central.
Safed awaits you at Beit Yosef Central, with the grace and charm of an earlier time and the glamorous indulgence of the contemporary.
