educational sessions

Mordechai Pinchas Sofer

If you would like a real live Sofer STaM to come and speak to your community then it’s a case of ‘have quill will travel’ (well within reason). I’ve given many talks, lectures and educational/hands on sessions for both adults and children, Jews and non-Jews who I find are fascinated by the art of sofrut. From sessions at cheder to addressing creatives at an advertising agency hopefully there is something to learn in sofrut that will appeal to everyone.

Available sessions:

The Work of the Sofer - the materials, rules and methods involved in creating and fixing Sifrey Torah, Tefillin, Mezuzot and Megillot. A demonstration of the basics which can also include a hands on practical on forming the letters (worksheet master supplied for copying).

Care of your Torah - a more in depth powerpoint presentation showing the sorts of issues one has to look for when looking after your Torah complete with many examples of pasul (non-kosher) Sifrey Torah.

Visual Midrash - sessions around the meaning and significance in the scribal oddities in the Torah, large letters, small letters, bent letters, strange taggin, dots, and other special forms.

Sofrut Halacha - sessions around the laws of sofrut - chok tochot, mukaf g’vil, k’sidran etc (advanced).

The Sixth Megillah - the creation of the sixth megillah - Megillat Hashoah, the first new scroll in over 1,500 years. He will examine in detail the visual midrashim that add meaning to the text and that there is no such thing as a co-incidence.

Siyyumim - completion ceremony for new or extensively repaired sifrey torah

Tailored sessions considered on request.
