A Look At My Students Leave a comment

In addition to my regular activities as a sofer, I also teach safrus. Most of my teaching is done on a one on one basis, or in very small groups. The cours is divided into three main parts: writing, erasing, and pen making. I feel that each of these three parts must be mastered in order to have success in writing. My goal is to give each student the skills necessary to write the ultimate prize: tefillin. Nothing demands as much skill as writing tefillin because of the small size and many halachos that must be adhered to. I teach my students to overcome problems with pen making, klaf, and much more. Perhaps most importantly, I try to show my talmidim as many shailos as I can in order to give them real shimosh (practical understand of the laws) in halacha. As well, I give shiurim in hilchos stam, and encourage my students to take tests from the Vaad Mishmereth STaM. I advise them on what they need to learn, and prep them as to what kinds of questions will be asked of them. Of course, I am here to answer their questions as well.  A successful session in my office will include learning the actual  writing, looking at various shailos that came up during the week, and speaking in halacha.
