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.

A photo diary of my second to last day in Eretz ha-Qodesh, the Holy Land:

An arched building adjacent to the Armenian Quarter of the Old City. This says "1938", the year my Mum was born:
Soferet @ Kotel 2

The first az I encountered, as I peered at the Kotel from Mount Zion:
AZ Red Soferet

As I turned around I found this on a gate:
AZ Gold Soferet

On my way out of the Rova, near the valley that Hell is named for, I caught another one:
AZ Stone Soferet

In the park at Yemin Moshe:
AZ Stam Soferet

& finally:
AZ Soferet: Water Honey Earth Milk

The memorial plaque at the restored & rejewvenated Cafe Hillel:
Soferet at Cafe Hillel Memorial

One of the last lines reads Hashem yenuqam damam - G@d will avenge their blood.
