A teacher!

After taking a semi-break over the summer, we are resuming our training - this time with a teacher! By sheer happenstance, I learned that Rabbi Fasman (Shaarei Tzedek) studied Sofrut in Jerusalem and has written his own Megillah. He was excited about our project and has agreed to teach us the STA"M alphabet . . . and more, as we progress. At our first session with him (Tuesday, August 31, 2010, at 7:30pm my house), he will review with us the letters we already learned (bet, resh, kaf, samech, mem sofit, daled, heh, vav, tof, peh), check our writing, and, time permitting, move on to the next few letters.  Meanwhile, practice, practice, practice.

I also want to introduce two new members of the group: Leslie Kastner and Andrea Ginsburg.

  1. Impressive development since you started in April! And of course I don't believe "sheer happenstance" brought you to your next teacher, but as the adage goes: "When the student is ready, the teacher appears."

    With the St.L Women's Megilla project, Esther will come out of her hidden place and there will have to be a big splashy celebration with the Megilla at center stage!
