Netivat Sofrut: diary of a Soferet

Adventures of a female sofer learning to heal the world by doing Holy Work...writing a Sefer Torah

נחזיר את השכינה למקומה בצייון ובתבל כלה

"Let us restore the Divine In-Dwelling to Her Place in Zion & infuse Her spirit throughout the whole inhabited world."

So wherever we are, let us bring the Peace of G@d's Presence.

SCRIBAL EVANGELIST As the only living certified Soferet (סופרת - female Jewish ritual scribe) & the first woman to practice sofrut (creation of sacred Hebrew texts) in over 200 years, I feel an obligation to blog about my experiences of The Work. I am also currently researching the foundation of a lost tradtion of women practicing this holy craft. For more on the services I provide, please see Soferet.com; Sofrut Nation. I am now available to engage with students, male or female, wishing to enter into the preliminary stage of learning sofrut. You are welcome to join me on this path.

BS"D

...WHILE VISIONS OF OTIYOT DANCE THROUGH MY HEAD...

Back in Seattle's north end.
As I strolled to Leah's Bakery for Shabbes supplies it occurred to me that the Hebrew word "yayin" (wine or grape juice) has a gematria of 70 (Yud=10 + Yud=10 + Nun=50 = 70) which is how many names we have for G@d in Judaism. & *that* gematria is also shared by the letter Ayin. The eye. Sight. All-Perceiving...

& you know what our tradition says - when the wine goes in, the secrets come out!
