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.

3 Tishrei

This is one of those things that restores my confidence in the existence of G@d, on those days when everything seems so chaotic & out of control that there's just no way there's a higher, benevolent intellegence behind the scenes.

& no, Jordan, I'm not referring to the Demiurge* ("Don't pay any attention to the man behind the curtain!")

* The definition of "Demiurge" on page 14 of The Bluffer's Guide to the Occult (Ravette Books, 1988) is:

An evil creator who tried to trick everyone into believing he was G@d while the real G@d stood in the background being mysterious.
