About the Course

For many dreaming of entering the world of Safrus, it has been just that: a far-fetched dream, with almost no way to materialize.

Finally, with Lemaan Yilmedu's Safrus course, you will be able to gain your certification in Safrus and the knowledge and skills required to serve as a Sofer Stam in just a year's time.

The instructor will guide you the entire way, ensuring you understand the material and are developing proper technique. Students will begin to write during the course, and by the time they graduate will have written their own Megillas Esther.

Lemaan Yilmedu will provide all the required supplies, including klaf, quills and ink.

The course will include studying each letter from the primary sources of Keses Hasofer and the Alter Rebbe’s Shulchan Aruch, the shape and form of the letter, the writing technique and dimensions. Student will also learn how to craft a quill, erase letters and work with klaf.

Successful students will finish the course with certification from Rabbi Refael Dovid Banon, Dayan of the Chabad community in Montreal and an acclaimed authority on Safrus. You will be well-prepared to take the Vaad Mishmeres Stam exams as well.

Serious applications prepared to dedicate the time necessary to mastering the skills and keeping in close contact with the instructor may be based anywhere in the world.
