Introduction to Jewish Scribal Arts with Rabbi Rachel Dvash Schoenfeld

March 23, 2014

A Sofer or Soferet, is a trained calligrapher who pens Torah scrolls, Tefillin, Mezuzot and much more.  In this hands-on workshop, Rabbi Rachel will provide an introduction  to traditional Hebrew calligraphy, or Sofrut,  including an exploration of the traditions and meanings behind this ancient art form and women’s roles in Sofrut today.   We’ll then spend the majority of our time learning to write together, using traditional Sofrut tools and quills.  No prior knowledge, artistic experience or Hebrew, necessary.  Bring your friends to this unique workshop!
