Tzaddik is a magazine about Judaism, kabbalah and chassidut based in Tsfat, Israel. Launched in August 2011, it is a joint project of Tsfat Education Fund and LKS Tsfat Development Corporation Ltd, a Tsfat-based company established in 2006 to attract investment as well as financial and human resources to Northern Israel.

It comes out as a quarterly and publications are timed to coincide with each season’s Jewish holidays. Each issue contains Kabbalistic thoughts of Tzfat’s rabbis which pertain to that season’s upcoming holiday as well as Hassidic teachings about prayer, the Nature of Man, Tzfat and Jewish Life.

The Hebrew word “tzaddik” — righteousness — refers to a person that has completely nullified his bad traits and desires. It is often used as a reference to Rebbe Nachman of Breslev.

Contributors to the Tzaddik Magazine cover a wide range of subject matter. Teachings of rabbis from Tzfat including Rabbi Elazar Mordechai Kenig and Rabbi Ephraim Kenig appear in the magazine as well as the writings of Rabbi Gedaliah Aharon Kenig, zt”l, an early leader of the Breslev community in Tzfat. Many other well-known writers, teachers and philosophers contribute to the magazine on a regular basis while others offer submissions as guest writers.

The articles in Tzaddik Magazine offer reflections on Breslev practices such as “Hitboddudut” — solitary meditation — and teachings about the Kabbalah, including the ideas and thinking of the great Tzfat Kabbalists such as Rabbi Isaac Luria — the ARI — and Rabbi Chaim Vital. Each issue of Tzaddik Magazine features philosophies and teachings which relate to the upcoming holidays along with the Hassidic outlook of how to fully enjoy and appreciate these special days.

Tzaddik Magazine presents the articles in a graphically-pleasing manner which draws the reader into the featured material. The professional photography depicts scenes of Tzfat as well as photos that illustrate the stories and information presented.
