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.

MI SHEBEYRAKH

בס"ד

Please add to your prayers Dr Eric Ray, Aryeh ben Emmy, in your mi shebeyrakhs for healing.
Dr Ray is one of the foremost sofrim st"m in the world. An excellent teacher & very charming person, he is one of the very few sofrim left on the planet who can identify Sifrei Torah, their materials, age & location of origin - even the sofer who wrote them. He is truly a treasure not only of the scribal world, but of the entire Jewish people.

He's been hospitalized for a few weeks now with pneumonia, in intensive care and still battling infection although at last off a ventilator.

For any of you who recognise that our lives would be poorer without our elders, our teachers, our mentors, please pray for HaShem to quickly restore his body & soul.

Ameyn v'ameyn selah.
