Sofer takes quill to HAFTR


Rabbi Akiva Oppen of Oppen Scrolls gave HAFTR three year olds a lesson on how a mezuzah and the klaf is made.

The sofer (scribe) brought samples of the parchment paper it is written on and he showed the children the special quill that he uses.

The students learned the significance of a mezuzah and placing it on doors in our homes, schools and places of work.
