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.

I'm taking my Mum in for eye surgery this morning. Please pray for it to go easily & fully restore her vision. Her name's Karryn Barclay, daughter of Muriel. Bless you.

Thanks, guys. & thanks to everyone who e-mailed & called me privately, too!
It took a lot longer than expected, but she's doing well & the surgeon is pleased with how things are looking now, B"H.

Great to hear that the surgery was successful.
Love the blog (first time seeing it).
When you write Bet-Sin-Dalet beside the post, are you invoking be'sadya d'shmaya? Or are you announcing your livelong pledge to the Black Saints' Disciples, the notorious crip set operating out of the Tri-City?
