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.

WHAT DO I WANT TO ACHIEVE?


Monday, August 16th
Elat Chayyim mornings are pleasantly disorienting as time spent in a nunnery.
Pages 204 - 206 in Tamar Ross' book are haunting me.
By the time I have completed this Sefer Torah, I want to have achieved independence and empowerment through the embrace of the 613th commandment, in the literal & mystic sense. I want to have claimed a direct, intimate personal relationship with G@d, which is within the grasp of all people, by doing the Work which I believe is mine to complete. I want to have defended the traditions of a moderate Orthodox Jewish stance in a society dominated by atheism & religious extremism, where fear & hate have gained unprecedented power and influence. I want to have helped heal the world & my own soul by obedience to HaMaqom.
