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.

The following is the comment I left on the very thoughtful post made last week by The Barefoot Jewess:

"Thank you, Barefoot, for this post. It is very inspiring & humbling at the same time. Your words remind me of the Ishbitz, who wrote of the mitzvah me'uchedet. The one mitzvah each of us has to perform for G@d before our time is up. G@d both chooses us for this task & innately qualifies us, whether or not we are aware. & sometimes, sometimes our ambitions are identical with G@d's plan for us, B"H!
Your presence on the blogosphere is a brakhah. Thank you."

Check out what she wrote, & the other comments, too.
Shavu'ah tov.

Thank you, my dear, for the response.

Yes, I believe that G-d does qualify us for something, perhaps for that one moment.

And you are just as much a bracha. Still, it warmed my heart to hear you say what you did (I am very preoccupied these days, so I am lax in responses). And my heart needed warming :).

May your heart always find warming just before it needs :)
