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.

16 Av

Really enjoyed teaching this morning. I had some very bright & talented students & it was a real pleasure! Yay, G@d!

We were honoured with going to Shanna & Julian's for lunch. "...two of us Sunday driving, not arriving...better believe it". SHE IS AN AMAZING COOK! & they're both genuinely kind, thoughtful people who I wish lived closer to us...

Joel & I packed up & left hurriedly for Montreal - it was very sad to have to say goodbye to R' Victor, but OH CANADA!
After a several hour drive through New England & an encounter with a strict, young customs girl at the border, we finally arrived *so late* at our hosts' home in Hampstead & crashed.

It was just a quiche! Everything else came from the store, or the ground (via the store).
