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 car is still not fixed. Parts must be ordered from faraway places because Ford has thoughtlessly discontinued the ones we need for our 20-year-old car. At least there is a sheltie-border collie cross to play with here in the house of Charna, the holy Maggid :)
The Torah of car repair I'm not so good at. The Torah of playing fetch in the back yard, tho' is quite another matter...

Reb Zalman called me to have yichud today, barukh haShem. He wanted to meet me, talk & give me a brakhah. This was a shehechiyanu day, full of gratitude to G@d that I lived to meet this moment with full consciousness.

I am still processing the intense encounter I experienced with this Sage (with my husband present, natch), so I will write about it later on. There is much to share...

I hate to say it, as I am, lulei demsitafina, a red-white-and-blue-blooded American, but...

always buy a Japanese car.

I agree with cloojew, at least for the next twenty years until China becomes more advanced.

I hope you don't mind me asking you this (I am also asking other blog authors whose blogs I read regularly), but would you be willing to put a link to my site on yours? My site is seriously lacking in Jewish readership and I could use the increased traffic (and more importantly, the feedback) on topics that I am writing about on the blog, and I don't know how to attract more Jewish readers. I'd appreciate any suggestions you have, and I've enjoyed reading your site since I came onto the blog world in March. Thanks. -Zoe

Cannot wait to hear about your connection with Reb Zalman. He is amazing!

ClooJew - thanks. The next time someone offers to give us a car (which is how we acquired this one), we'll specify Japanese ;+>
Zoe - I'll check out your blog
Rachel - I will share, promise :) & yes, he truly is amazing!
