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.

I just read your comment over at Aidel Maidel. The Rolling Stones quote. I'm going to use that in my little talk tonight about my "return to Yiddishkeit". I think it's appropriate. I hope I don't have to explain it to anyone.

Wow, that's really beautiful. I'm having one of those wondrous moments wherein you discover a friend has some surprising and unexpected talent, like hand-laying lace, or juggling chainsaws.

Aw, thanks, bear! That's really sweet of you to say so. BTW, we have some terrif pix of you at our wedding, so let's try to meet up next time we're in your neck of the woods. You're always welcome to come to us as well :)
