Soferet: A Special Scribe (2005)

Available worldwide

Scribing a Torah scroll is a tradition that is thousands of years old and is now being challenged by a young woman. Aviel Barclay is a Vancouver artist and calligrapher who feels scribing a Torah scroll is her destiny. Her journey takes us into a world of ancient practices, hallowed rituals and the making of beautiful religious art. Beneath her tale is a story that raises many issues of great urgency for our times.
