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. "Tzedeq, tzedeq tir'dof - Justice, justice you shall pursue." Devarim/Deuteronomy 16:20.

The Shabbatot I have spent here have been glorious, thank G@d.
I haven't blogged about them much, because shabbes is a whole day requiring a half day of preparation, so by the time it's over so much has happened that I never know where to begin with my writing. Besides, getting back into headspace after 36 hours of heartspace disturbs my mellow, man...

I have been lucky enough to celebrate with the holy Yidden at Yakar, the Leader Minyan, Yedidya & others.

& to share delicious food with kind, gracious hosts who allow me to contribute. Laugh, share, meet new spouses & babies of friends I have not seen since my last trip here 3 years ago. Go for walks. Make new friends. Take naps. Learn Torah.

This is what life is all about :)
