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.

7 Tishrei

Happy Thanksgiving!
We went off to the Fifth Avenue Cinema to catch a matinee of "Corpse Bride", Tim Burton's latest masterpiece of puppetry. It was fantastic! Kudos to all the artists & actors!

I made Joel a celebratory meal for two, including creamed potatoes with peas, squash & green beans in butter & hickory smoked Tofurky slices (we have a dairy-only kitchen). This is truly a time to be thankful to G@d: for enough to eat, for a roof over our heads, for good health. But you don't have to wait until Thanksgiving Day to feel gratitude to HaShem for the blessings in you life - any day will do :)
