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

THERE'S NO PLACE LIKE HOME

Friday, August 6th, Parte Deux
Later in the afternoon there were so many failings of the people & place, such contraction & sadness. So much pain hurled from one to an innocent other, soiling bystanders. It broke my heart to see such a stirring.
That night, over our huge & beautiful Shabbes meal, R' Mordechai told a tale of love, of renewal, of hospitality & of release that inspired all present & that I hope taught a gentle lesson to those who move in directions opposite.
There were many smiling faces floating above white garments & glasses of wine this night. Generous laughter & kind acts throughout. Perhaps a tiqun, a healing, can be made.

Good Shabbes, good Yontif
