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.

An elderly homeless man stretched his arms wide to me as he asked this a few hours ago. I smiled & blessed him instead.

I haven't blogged in almost a month, as I have been occupied with catching up on overdue work, preparing for my next teaching engagement, checking in with my mum over medical issues, avoiding a stalker, attending religious & political lectures & moving out of my apartment.

But it's all good.

אוֹר, זָרֻעַ לַצַּדִּיק; וּלְיִשְׁרֵי-לֵב שִׂמְחָה
or zaru'a la-tzadiq u-le-yishrey leyv simchah
Light is sown for the righteous, and for the upright in heart, gladness

Well, we've been hanging out waiting for you. Hope it was a good month.
