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.

Hey, Rabs!
Ok, I'll call you, bli neder :)

Hi, Alissa - I have YOU to thank for this - you & R' Ross Singer & Naomi Voss & so many other people who have been supporting me in my sofrut work for years & years. You worked SO HARD on the Shaarey Tefilah Megillat Esther Project & you wrote articles & you TOTALLY networked the JOFA conference away back when I was just starting out with my fresh, new, shiny-white sofrut certification. So you should be proud of yourself too, because you helped me earn this honour.
Thanks, bud :)
