The Journey of a Sofer: A Study into Spiritual Calligraphy by Brodie Taylor

April 24, 2021 @ 2:00 pm 4:00 pm

Sacred texts govern and guide a vast majority of our daily lives, through allegories, ancient stories and centurial sesquipedalian sentences that take years to truly understand. The protocols surrounding these sacred texts can be even more complicated, providing for a fascinating form of scholarship. In the Jewish tradition, the Torah Scroll, or Sefer Torah has strict laws governing the creation of such a document, which are upheld by an elite class of calligrapher; the Sofers.
