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. "Tzedeq, tzedeq tir'dof - Justice, justice you shall pursue." Devarim/Deuteronomy 16:20.

I'm glad you enjoyed it, Peter. I truly believe that part of healing the brokenness of the world & that of our souls, known in Hebrew as Tiqun Olam & Tiqun Ha-Lev, is drawing close to G@d.

The sacrifices in the Temple were known as korban, meaning "to bring closer". We must all strive to share the intimacy we seek in our partnerships with G@d as well, hence my use of bridal imagery in the article. Beyond the veil of Torah we can unite with G@d...
