Ascent Institute of Safed

Religious in Tsfat

Offers Jews interested in ‘spiritual discovery’ drop-in and weekend classes on the Torah and Jewish mysticism. Run by members of the Chabad Hasidic movement, some of whom believe that Menachem Mendel Schneerson (1902–94), aka the Lubavitcher Rebbe, is the Messiah.

For 200NIS, a rabbi will sit with you for an hour (also possible via phone and Skype) to find your Personal Torah Code, based on your birth date, which Ascent promises will reveal your true personality and your purpose in life and equip you for spiritual and material success. The real deal? You decide.
