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.

Today, meaning yesterday (Tuesday August 15th).

My days typically look like this. See if you can spot today's anomaly. It's not easy:
* wake
* wash
* pray
* make myself one of those Israeli mochas out of Elite instant coffee, powdered chocolate & milk
* write
* hand wash my laundry for the day & hang it on the line where it will dry in 4.5 seconds due to this baking heat
* eat something, if I remember to
* attempt to catch up on 25% of the hundreds of e-mails I get every day
* try to connect with my mother on AIM (I have no phone)
* wash
* pray
* go out. do something I can only do in Jerusalem & nothing that I can do in Vancouver
* meet with an Orthodox sofer stam who doesn't approve of what I'm doing (because only listening to people who praise me is unhealthy & unreal)
* accidentally stumble into an angel who advises me on my life, future, G@d, the messiah & asks that he be invited to my wedding.
* meet a friend for dinner & drinks
* come home & cruise the internet
* wash
* pray
* go to bed

Did you spot it? I know, it's hard. I hid it really well.

His name is Moshe Tzvi. He is a living, breathing blessing & I was supposed to meet him today.

Please buy his holy art.

Entrance from the lane across from the Ticho house into Rav Kook's home courtyard, where The Museum of Psalms is:
Soferet @ Rav Kook's house

Ceiling just above the door in the previous pic. Moshe Tzvi told me he painted this & all the ceilings inside his museum "10 years ago...when I was young". 10 years ago he was in his mid-70s...
