Berit Engen WEFT and D'RASH – A Thousand Jewish Tapestries

– PIFS: Parchment, Ink, Feather, Scribe

I remember the awe that filled the sanctuary in our synagogue many years ago when an older scribe, a sofer STaM, came to talk about the holiness of the Torah scroll itself. While I was used to studying the text, this way of looking at the book appealed to the artist in me: tools, materials, calligraphy, and rules for executing the crafts needed to complete the task of making a scroll from scratch to finished object. Not to mention hard work, dedication, and a sense of a higher purpose.
