Rabbi Kevin Hale is a Sofer STaM — a traditionally trained Torah scribe — who spends his days evaluating, repairing and writing Torah / tefillin / megillot. He is passionate about offering hands-on education, enriching our connection to torah, and empowering rising soferim.
This morning session for adults — “Torah in Black and White” — focuses on the 613th commandment to “write this song for yourselves”, the mitzvah for each of us to write a torah. We will learn about the ancient tools, materials, practices and rituals that go into this sacred craft. We will visit the world of the Torah scribe and learn about the current state of the Jewish scribal world, then practice a classic Ashkenazi Torah script for a taste of the life of a sofer. Lettering sheets and supplemental materials will be provided.
Adults are also welcome to attend the religious school sessions between 10:15 and 12:20, and may also observe the work of Rabbi Hale in the afternoon while he is inspecting our scrolls.+ More... - Less...
