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.

I CAN'T BELIEVE IT'S BEEN A WHOLE WEEK...

Erev Shabbat I got home from here doing this:

Yep, that's me doing my little lecture-dance in full red-eye. Taken with the new digital camera given to me by my fab host family! It's shehechiyanu time! :D

I'd like to publicly offer my great thanks to Rabbis Linda Motzkin & Jonathan Rubenstein for their generosity & kindness.

For my shiur on the Torah portion we read today, check out Radical Torah as per usual.

Shavu'ah tov!

Oh yeah, these people are the sweetest neshamahs :D
They said it was ridiculous that I had to borrow cameras each time I needed to photograph my work or log my experiences, since I rely so heavily on the visual...& they're right.
I'm so grateful!
