Julie Seltzer, a soferet, or professionally-trained female scribe is writing an entire Torah scroll at the Contemporary Jewish Museum, as part of the exhibition "As It Is Written: Project 304,805" (The Torah Project). She will be one of the only women known to ever complete a Torah scroll, and the first to do so in a public space.
