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.

SOUTHEAST ASIA RELIEF FUND

BS"D


(from the USCJ web site)
"The tsunami in South Asia and the tremendous devastation it has brought in its wake has deeply affected us all, and it is hard to find words to express our sympathy and sorrow. Rabbi Shai Held has written a beautiful prayer seeking to put into words what we are feeling in the aftermath of this terrible disaster. The prayer can be found here. It would be a meaningful addition to our communal liturgy in the weeks ahead."

I would just like to add personally that we musn't forget that the tunami has caused death & destruction as far away as Somalia & that they need help too. We must also not allow the tragedy in Southeast Asia make us forget about the genocide still going on in Darfur. There are many opportunities we are given to be mensches, to behave as Tzadikim, which G@d (who caused this earthquake & tsunami) expects us to respond to concurrently. Let's rise to the challenge the Holy One gives us.
