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.

HUMBLED BY EMPTINESS & GRATITUDE

בס"ד


3 Tishrei - the fast of Gedaliyah

I can't believe it's been 2 years. & then all at once, I can't believe it's been only 2 years. So very much has unfolded, run roughshod over me, been a great blessing, taken me by surprise. & yet, although I did not expect it all, nor at first accept it all, I have been learning how to dance with it all.

Thank G@d. May each one of us move from strength to strength this year, & for those of you who are choosing to fast today, may it be easy yet meaningful. Blessings to all.
