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.

12 Menachem Av

To celebrate T"U be-Av, the full moon of this comforting Jewish month & the traditional day to pair off with one's future spouse, I'll be giving the low-down on Love Sparks!: Sacred Sexuality & the Hebrew Letters at 8pm this Wednesday, August 9th, hosted by Pardes Institute of Jewish Studies.

The park where we will meet is between Elazar Hamodai, Reysh Laqish & Rabi Chiyyah streets, at the end of Bruriyah street next to the Beyt Elisheva

(War permitting, of course)

As advertised on MySpace.

We'll discuss traditional sources on the positive gender-tension within G@d's 4-Letter Name & various other ideas supporting the unity of Creation.

All are welcome & it's free.


In other exciting sofrut news, I've added new products & images to my CafePress Store & to my Flickr page. Check 'em out :)

I'm so sorry, Simon. I was really sick. They told me not to worry & that I shouldn't teach, but...does that mean they didn't make an announcement that I was ill & was cancelling?

OY! I hope people don't think that I just flaked out...

Sorry you showed up for nothing :(
