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.

3 Av


I Wrote more Megilah today :D
(note large letter Chet in the name "Choor")
Obviously, the illustration is still in process, as I am "building" it. Stay posted for more pictures as the art unfolds.

We mostly took it easy, generally sorted out our lives. Processed Kallah & Elat Chayyim.

Later we went out to dinner with Michael & Becca & Maggie to a funky hekashered veggie restaurant next to Yale. There were other frumelehs inside & everyone on the staff had dreds :)
Becca is amazing & occasionally comments on this blog. Michael is also, particuarly because of his COMIC ART here, here, & he gave Joel & I a copy of "Satisfactory Comics No. 6" featured here!

We just generally talked Torah & caught up on the last year with each other. & a good time was had by all.

Snap! I wrote Megillah too! I've been playing taggin jokes, so "etz" has leaf taggin, and one of the "eynav"s has bug-eyes on the ends of the taggin instead of dots. I'm toying with the idea of making a gallows on "yitlu" when they hang Haman...In between that and lettering this crazy kabbalistic Torah, it's been quite a creative week.

Snap! (*grin*)
You're so funny (as in you have a good sense of humour) - I haven't played Snap in ages.
So you also worked on a Megilah that day? Tell me more about these embellishments you're making on both it & the Torah you're fixing...
