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.

Shalom u'verakhah! Peace & blessing!

I'm looking forward to meeting you during my 2005 North American Tour, when I will be visiting many communities speaking on sofrut & giving presentations as well as checking & repairing Sifrei Torah.

At Elat Chayyim, the inspirational Jewish retreat centre in the Catskills, I will be teaching my popular course on Hebrew Calligraphy & Midrash on the Alefbet. This is a rare opportunity for those living on the east coast, so I would like to warmly welcome any first-timers to join my students & me in this Journey through the Hebrew Letters. You can find all the details about this session by clicking on ShalhevetYah.

I am also thrilled about the positive reception the latest news articles on the Women's Torah Project received:
The San Francisco J, picked up by the Jewish Telegraphic Agency
The Jewish Daily Forward (also available here if you scroll down a few days' posts)

If you have any questions about these or any other of my upcoming events, I would be happy to respond; simply contact me through this blog or I look forward to hearing from you.

Chazaq ubarukh! Strength & blessing!
