Are Arabs taking over the city of Safed? And is it racist to try and stop them? Rabbi Mordechai Siev of Safed (known in Hebrew as Tzfat) talks about the controversial letter asking Jewish residents to stop selling apartments to wealthy overseas Arab real estate investors. Plus, Ascent of Safed helps young people searching for meaning in life get closer to their roots with special programs and seminars in the mystic city known as the birthplace of Kabbalah. 

In the second segment, Shifra Hoffman debates an anti-Israel activist.
