Equipment for Safrut Course

You will need a variety of supplies for use throughout the course.

The first set of items can be purchased from any Safrut supply vendor, and if you have easy access to a local supplier it is best to already develop a relationship with one. The specialty items should cost approximately $70.

If there is no local supplier, you can order a “kit” for shipping from either of the following suppliers:
