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.

20 Adar

I've added many more pictures of my work to the right-hand side-bar & increased the size & detail of several images as well, so please click away at them & at the Flickr pix as you wish. If you do, you'll also get to read old posts I wrote on various Parshiyot, Kabbalah & many sofrut experiences I've enjoyed.

BTW, if you're usign Explorer, my blog doesn't look the way it should. None of the Hebrew appears & the right-hand side-bars are awaaaaaaaaaaaay down at the bottom - so look there.

I was sickened to find out today that Barya & Dinah Rayzel Schacter-Shalomi, who are expecting their first child, as well as their guest Mobius narrowly escaped death or injury, thank G@d, when a home made bomb attached to their home failed to detonate over Shabbes. It's posted here.

Blessed is G@d who is good & who does good.

Oh, sorry, Dan. I misunderstood. Thanks for the correction :)
Having been a resident of Bat Ayin & an acquaintance of Barya & Dinah Rayzel myself, I'm still horrified & relieved - this is way too close.

Ameyn, sister Sarah - & for everyone's safety & continued well being in the world, everyone must work toward a solution to the root cause of these sorts of actions.
