Bas Ayin Shul

Bas Ayin Shul

The Shul of the Bas Ayin

The Bas Ayin was a holy Tzaddik from Ukraine who moved to Tzfat in 1830. He had his own shul in the Old City. In 1836 there was a devastating earthquake that killed thousands in Tzfat. The Bas Ayin was in his shul with people davening when the earthquake was about to start and he was able to save everyone in the Shul by having them stand next to him while the rest of the building collapsed. After the Bas Ayin passed away many people left Tzfat and the synagogue was abandoned. Sephardic Jews who later came to Tzfat fixed up the Shul and still pray there today. The Bat Ayin Shul is only open on Shabbos and there is davening there on Shabbos morning. If you want to see the inside of the Shul where the miracle took place it is best to go around Mincha time on Shabbos day. The shul is located on steps on the right side of the Kosov Shul. Exact davening times coming soon.
