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.

HAPPY CANADA DAY!

בס"ד


In honour of my nation's 138th birthday, I have changed the colour scheme of my blog to a patriotic red & white :D

We watched the festivities take place in Ottawa on Pariament Hill. Quite grand. The day opened with an enormous African-Canadian opera diva with an equally enormous orange 'fro singing our national anthem in both languages. Then there was a whole bunch of very passionate First Nations People's chanting & drumming. A huge old man's head would float out between acts & entertain us with amusing stories told in his joual accent, then the Prime Minister accepted our original flag (kept in Belgium the past 40 years!) on behalf of Canadians to be safely kept in the Peace Tower.

Then Joel & I had brunch & generally got ready for Shabbes. An old friend (another Joel!) is spending the Holy Shabbat with us, so there will be more blessing in our home this Parshat Korach...

Shabbat Shalom!
