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; 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.

"Israel's Chief Sephardic Rabbi has declared that "women may be great Talmudists (gedolei hador) & they may serve as arbiters of the law (morei hora'ah) & as teachers of Torah & practical halakhah, because the authority for these positions flows from the individual's talents.""
I hope his attitude catches on. In the mean time my mystic practice reminds me that gender difference can make *all* the difference to some people. Strict discipline in diet, solitude, spiritual growth, sacrifice and sexuality I pray will help women gain independence and empowerment through mysticism, & that these disciplines, taken on voluntaritly as an expression of love for the Creator, will be remembered as hugely relevant today.
