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.

My good friends Morey & Alissa stayed over with me for the weekend, our last 2 days of Sukot. It was so great having their company. Offering to be a host is an important service to perform - & enjoyable, when you share your home space with creative folks like these:
Holiday message for Soferet
This is how they left a message for me when I was asleep, to let me know where they would be when I woke up. We aren't allowed to write on Shabbat or Jewish holidays, you see, so they went to tremendous, hilarious & highly artistic lengths to catch my attention when I emerged from my room.
Of course, I didn't notice it until they came home & showed it to me :(
I don't notice anything for at least an hour after I wake up.
But they're awesome anyway...
