Writing a Torah scroll is a religious act. First and foremost, a kosher . The scribe cannot write a Torah scroll from memory, and must refer to a written book called a tikkun (correction guide). First and foremost, a kosher (acceptable according to Jewish law) Torah scroll must be hand-written. This is done by a sofer (scribe), a specially trained individual who is devout and knowledgeable in the laws governing the proper writing and assembling of a scroll. More specifically, the modern scribe is called a sofer stam, an acronym for sefer torah (Torah scroll) tefillin (phylacteries) and mezuzah.

A Jewish scribe explains in detail how he shapes the Hebrew letters he uses in transcribing the Torah and how he prepares the scrolls themselves. 32 p. : Number of pages.

Writing a Torah takes love and patience, knowledge and skill. Eric Ray is a gentle, wise man, a skilled artist, and a learned Jew. In this read-aloud text and photo essay, both his craft and his passion are shared. Sitting by Eric's side, we learn how a sofer makes mezuzot, tefillin, and the sefer Torah; and we learn to love the Torah a little bit more.

Sofer - The Story of a Torah Scroll is a nice children's book. When children are young you want to read them stories about public heros like firefighters or doctors so their lives emulate noble people. This book is for the Jewish child, to inspire him to learn Hebrew and fulfill the mitzvot of writing a Torah scroll. It is full of pictures and decribes the daily ritual of the sofer, Eric Ray. Sadly some of the pictures in my copy are discolored, I hope yours will be better.

After attending a presentation by the author's masterful former student Rabbi Kevin Hale, I had to order this the moment I got home. This is a must have for anyone interested in the spiritual art of Torah engrossing (writing) - it encompasses so very much more that putting pen to paper (hide) that I was awed and inspired. I see our Torah in a completely different way. Rabbi Ray has such Love and reverence for the this work! May his memory be a blessing and his message be carried by those who follow in his footsteps.
A book for artists, calligraphers, Judaism, Torah
We enjoyed this book. Our 7 yr. old is fascinated with Hebrew letters. The first part of the book goes through the Alef-Bet/alphabet and gives a small story or way to remember each letter. Then the books tells the sofer's story as he goes through the process of making a Torah scroll.

A great introduction to fascinating history. A great multicultural book for kids wanting to write with quills - not just done by the founding fathers of 1776.
