In October 2009, the production model of Spark changed, moving from a stand alone series of original programs to the production of Spark segments, which will be premiered throughout the year as part of the newly re-vamped This Week in Northern California.
In this segment, Spark heads to San Francisco's Contemporary Jewish Museum, where Julie Seltzer, a female scribe known as a soferet, is breaking ground by writing out an entire Torah. Being a woman in a traditionally male-dominated field, Seltzer continues to make history, one letter at a time, at the museum until October 3, 2010.
This program is not currently scheduled for broadcast.
