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.

LEARNING TORAH FOR THE SAKE OF HEAVEN...& GREAT BEACHES

בס"ד
8 Sh'vat


I discovered this today. Non-denominational Jewish learning in Maui in February. That's the ticket. Jews gathering to share & learn lishma, then taking it home to their communities to spread the sparks.

My friend Lisa Alcalay Klug is one of the teachers, a dedicated journalist & a very sweet soul.
& she's going to Hawai'i while I am bombarded by ads reminding me not to forget my ice picks when I ski-doo.

I often think about what we can all do as Jews to soften the political barriers between Jewish denominations. Where is that respectful middle ground where we can all meet, regardless of our theories & practices? How do we promote Judaic interdenominationalism?

If we can do this, we will enrich all Israel & the world.
