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.

RED HOT TORAH

בס"ד
11 Sh'vat

I hate to part with these books, but finances demand it.
I'm willing to let go of my collectible First Edition 1952 London Soncino Press Babylonian Talmud in English edited by Rabbi Dr Isadore Epstein; 30 volumes, some with beige book covers, a bit torn; others just red cloth hardcovers with gold imprint. Clean, good shape, corners a bit worn. Endpapers intact.
Other online single volumes in similar shape are going for $30 - $45 USD each. This is a steal.
$500 for the set or make me an offer I can't refuse.

I am not interested in buying your s'farim, but I would love to buy a "Breishit" like the ones you posted about a couple of weeks ago. (And if it helps you keep s'farim you'd rather not part ways with yet, well, good.)

I'm sorry. That was an inappropriate comment. It's just hard to read the pain in your words in this post.

Yeah, that's private. But I understand.
