Hanna Klebansky's Profile
My name is Hanna and I am a rare creature in Israel - a certified (woman) Conservative Rabbi and a Soferet Stam (a Jewish texts scribe). There are only about 17 women trained as a Soferet Stam in the entire world.
Being a woman Soferet Stam and/or woman Rabbi in Israel is a very controversial position.
I immigrated to Israel from the Former Soviet Union in 1996, where I was a concert pianist. My husband and I live in Jerusalem with our five children.
The very special creations that I offer on Etsy are all made with traditional scribe's ink on kosher parchment. I form each letter by hand, while meditating on the holiness of the Hebrew letters.
