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.

Nu, so the Torah isn't in heaven? Isn't there a Torah miSinai that was given to us and Torah min Shamayim that remains in heaven?

Actually I think it's interesting to see that Torah min shamayim, which is the construction plan for the universe contains natural laws and so, while the Torah we have doesn't. No one, not even Chazal, could derive madda for Torah. Some things weren't offered to us at Sinai, so we should go and find them. That's why, in my opinion, studying scienceing Torah. is as much of a mitzva as studying Torah miSinai. The way this world works is part of Torah minShamayim, so us getting into the secrets of this world's functions is actually study
