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.

An e-mail I received:

From: "!"
Subject: why?

why did you feel the need to write torahs?
I mean wasn't there anything else you could do with yourself that would
accomplish more?

Well, "!", I do pray that G@d will bless my husband & I with children. & we believe that raising globally healthy children, imbued with Yirat Shamayim/Awe of Heaven is actually more important than writing a Sefer Torah. After all, if we don't teach kids to be open to Torah when they're young, all the Torah scrolls in the world will be useless to those future Jewish adults whose hearts are closed.
If we don't do our job as parents, then it takes the neys, miracle, of G@D turning hearts of stone back into flesh, to turn us back to Torah.
