Kefitzat Haderech (Hebrew: קְפִיצַת הַדֶּרֶךְ, Modern: Qəfiẓat haDéreḫ or Kfitzat haDérech, Tiberian: Qəp̄îṣáṯ hadDéreḵ) is a Jewish Kabbalistic term that literally means "contracting the path." The root kefatz, in this Talmudic context, means "to clench" (in modern Hebrew and other stages of the language, the word translates as "jump"): that is, the route itself is shortened. Kefitzat Haderech refers to miraculous travel between two distant places in a brief time. The Talmud lists three biblical stories in which this miracle occurs. In early stories of the Chasidic movement, wonder-working rabbis are ascribed the ability to reach destinations with unnatural speed.
