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.

30 Mar Cheshvan

This month has been truly bitter, Barukh ha-Shem. & will soon be over. May its bitterness end with the revival of the moon.
I made beeswax candles today from the stubs of ones which had burnt down, their life force used up. This will renew their souls & make our home sweet.
"Ner ha-Shem nishmat adam...", G@d's candle is the human soul...

But my birthday is on the 3rd of Cheshvan...what say you to the ones of us who have our days of birth in this month -- surely, we need more such festivities to brighten the seeming bitterness?

Do you give local classes...and are you interested in discussing this more thoroughly over coffee? I'd like to know some more...and perhaps incorporate it into something more long-form, perhaps in story format...
