Behind the Scenes Sofer Tour

Behind the Scenes Sofer Tour

“Behind the Scenes Sofer Tour”

Take a hands-on tour for families and groups as you learn all about the fascinating world of Sofrut (scribal arts).

Have you ever wondered how a Torah Scroll is created? How every single letter written on the parchment is done in such a precise way? What is inside a pair of Tefillin and what does it take to create them? What is the significance to Mezzuzah and how are they written? What does it take to be a Sofer STaM (scribe) and how is it done? What is the significance to the initials STaM?

The Tour
Families will be treated to in-depth explanations and demonstrations on how Torah Scrolls, Tefillin, Mezzuzot and Megillot are created.

  • Differences between Ashkenazic and Sefardic writing styles will be shown.
  • How the Sirtut, lines on the parchment, are made.
  • How a Sofer fashions a feather pen.
  • See a demonstration on how a Sofer writes on actual parchment and get a chance to try it yourself, and much more!
  • Calligraphy Workshop (additional fee)
  • Papercutting Workshop (additional fee)

The tour is ideal for adults or children above age 5, but it is especially appropriate for a Bar Mitzvah group.
