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.

4 Av

We woke to Maggie's enthusiastic banjo playing this morning (does banjo music ever sound angsty or mournful? Not according to Steve Martin...). She's only had it a few months, but has become quite skilled.

Today I read "Under Crescent & Cross: The Jews in the Middle Ages" by Mark R. Cohen, interspersed with writing the "dead sons amud". That would be the list of Haman's sons who we hanged after they all tried to murder us. Pictures to follow...

We bid goodbye to Maggie & headed to New Rochelle, NY, where we had din at Eden Wok with Ada, Michelle & Nathan. They had a glatt 9 daze menu, so Joel & I shared this whole fish that was decorated like a floating ferry boat. Ada & us two went back to her place & hung out with her & the cat later.

What a lovely day, B"H.
