Learn how to write mezzuzot, ketubot, gittin, and even sifrei torah. After studying sofrut with Tekumah, you will be certified to write any of these holy texts.
The Tekumah Sofrut Program will be launching in Los Angeles towards the end of 2013 or beginning of 2014, as details of the program are still being finalized. At the end of your studies, you will be certified in sofrut stam (general scribal arts).
Tekumah is founded on the principal that any Jew interested in learning should be able to. Therefore, our programs are open to Jews of any gender, sexual orientation, and religious observance. While fluency in Hebrew is not required, a familiarity with the language is essential. Many texts and terms will exist solely in Hebrew, though we hope to have an English translation of the essential laws available for those who need it.
The cost of the program is yet to be determined. However, all students will be required to purchase a kit consisting of the various tools required for sofrut. We hope to have scholarships available for those who require it.
