Join us for a live calligraphy demonstration and instruction with film subject Rabbi Kevin Hale (Commandment 613).
Rabbi Hale will be showing us the traditional tools materials and techniques used to write and restore Torah and other sacred texts. Have paper, pencil, ruler and a calligraphy or chisel-tip marker on hand, as he guides us in writing the Hebrew letters of "Shabbat Shalom" following a classic Ashkenazi torah script.
Rabbi Kevin Hale has dedicated his life to the 613th Commandment -- the commandment to write a torah scroll. As a sofer, a scribe, Rabbi Hale brings new life to scrolls saved from Czechoslovakia during the Holocaust, many now in Massachusetts. With wisdom and deep reflection on his own path to faith and practice, Rabbi Hale shares the beauty of this ancient sacred craft.
