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.

STUMBLING LETTERS

Wednesday, August 11th
Wrote first thing in the morning - a few small errors hinted to me to slow down & focus & breathe.
But it's so difficult somethimes. I miss Joel.
Leslie called & we had a great chat on the phone. It's so terrific to speak to her again after all these years. We get very wrapped up in our own lives, don't we? What can the Hebrew letters teach me about that?
I called R' Kevin Hale later & we spoke for a bit. It was good. I'm relieved to have a handful of quasi-colleagues around the world. I say "quasi" because I don't know any of them very well, or what their religious or even sofrut practice is, but they are equally rejected by the establishment as I am. They are men, but they are Reconstructionist, Conservative, Reform. I am Orthodox, but I am a woman. That is my only "flaw".

how many letters in a bottle of ink - oprm?
