The Sofer – Scribe Workshop
Connect with the story of writing holy texts in the traditional way. Meet an experienced Sofer Stam and learn how he writes Tefillin, Mezuzot, Megilot and Sefer Torah Scrolls.
Archeologists have found ancient scrolls over 2000 years old, such as Tefillin which were found from the Bar Kochba Rebellion which are just like the Tefillin that we don today.
When you participate in the Sofer Scribe workshop you will understand how Holy scrolls have been written for thousands of years on Leather Parchment using inks made from ancient recipes written with bamboo or feather quill pens.
