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.

7 Elul

I still have not received my gall nuts. How can I make d'yo (sofrut ink) without gall nuts?
Patience is a virtue...

While I wait, I found this interesting article. Looks like we lose the right to use the decisions of batei din (Jewish rabbinic courts) in civil courts of law, & that shari'ah (Muslim Law) will not, in fact, be allowed to be where the buck stops for Islamic Ontario.

This afternoon, during a break I took from writing, I watched a documentary about 9/11. It was as sickening & tragic as ever. Now I have to "get clean" before I go back to the sofrut.

This evening we had Joel F aka "Yo'el Acheyr" ("other Joel") over for nachos & The Daily Show downloads. Then we hung out & listened to Leonard Cohen. That helped heal the day a little.
