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.

My hand is in bad shape. Not even just my hand, but my whole right arm, shoulder, neck & my left hip :(
& the first knuckle on my right thumb is swollen up about twice the size of my left, non-writing one. It's really slowing me down.
I wish I could afford to get appropriate medical support for it. Basic medical is covered in BC, but massage, chiropractic & physio are all extra. I wistfully think back to the goode olde days when it was all free...
I'm grateful that my work demands I focus on qedusha, as that is paramount, but it sure would be Heaven to not always be battling pain.

Refuah shleima. Sorry I can't offer you more than that...I somehow doubt that your hot lemon juice with garlic trick would work here, huh?

Thanks a lot, Shanna, G@d willing the paraffin bath (which Joel's mum & step-dad bought for me last Chanukah) & the Traume'el will keep my hand going until I can get another speaking gig :)
