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.

This was an intense, full Shabbat, thank G@d. Much walking & processing. Too much to write about, so all you get tonight is a picture & a link to this incredible poem, Shodo of Fifteen Years’ Marriage, second one down.

No, Peter, thank you. Thank you for the Art of Self you continually bring into the world.

Regina - does this mean your dad is getting better? G@d willing, he will have a full recovery & you will all be granted the support you need.
