The Western Wall, “Kotel HaMa’aravi” of Jerusalem’s Temple Mount.
Jerusalem has seventy spiritual names. These names are written in micro calligraphy to create the word Jerusalem, “Yerushalayim,” that glows warmly in gold over this spiritual site. This is Ellen’s first piece that is not created completely in micro calligraphy. The picture looks like embroidery, as the original piece is hand-painted needlework on fabric.

The “Kotel HaMa’aravi,” Western Wall of Jerusalem’s Temple Mount stands as a testimony to yesterday, today and tomorrow, bound by centuries of tears, fears, dreams and hopes absorbed into her ancient walls. Echoing timeless prayers, her sun drenched stones glitter with the golden hues of sunrise and sunset in this rendition of Ellen Miller Braun’s “Seventy Names of Jerusalem.”
Shining eternally gold, “Jerusalem” glows warmly over this holy site.

The “Jerusalem” in this design is created using Jerusalem’s 70 names, which so eloquently describe her many vibrant and spiritual qualities.*

The number 70 is significant in a number of ways in Judaism and it’s teachings:

HaShem, G-d, has 70 Names.

70 Nations descended from Noah.

70 languages emerged after the Tower of Babel.

The Torah was translated into the 70 languages of the Nations.

The Torah has 70 names.

The Torah was transmitted to 70 elders.

The 70 sages of the Sanhedrin safeguarded the Torah.

The Torah was engraved on 70 stones after Joshua crossed the Jordan.

Israel has 70 names.

There were 70 people who went down to Egypt with Jacob.

The Jews celebrate 70 holy days per year, 52 Sabbaths and 18 festivals

(including all the days of Pesach and Succot)

During Succot, there were 70 sacrifices offered for the 70 nations.

The Temple was built with 70 pillars.

The Holy City of Jerusalem had 70 names.

((Midrash Zuta

The Seventy Names of Jerusalem is an enchanting deviation from Ellen Miller Braun’s other micro calligraphy illustrations. Ellen originally created this as a gift for her second son-in-law, sewing a special satchel for his prayer shawl. The satchel was designed with paint on fabric and embroidery. The final piece was then transformed into this stunning picture with Jerusalem’s seventy spiritual names inscribed in gold, hovering over the ancient wall. These spiritual names embody the strength of Jerusalem and the beauty of her centuries old religious significance. The choice of colors, matching the sunrise and sunset at “the Kotel,” came from the wedding invitation which Ellen also created for the new couple.

Ellen Miller Braun was born and raised in Chicago, Illinois, U.S.A. Drawing on her natural talent, Ellen studied fine arts at Northeastern Illinois University. Ellen and her husband decided to follow their heart felt dream and moved to Israel with their children in 1983. Ellen’s inspiration comes directly from G-d, and reflects her love of her wonderful, growing family and living in Israel.

The story of how Ellen began creating micro calligraphy is almost as inspiring as the works of art themselves. Before Ellen began creating these amazing works, she was already a world class artist creating soft sculptures of whimsical Chassidic figures as well as familiar Political and Biblical characters.
One day I woke and the need to do this (micro calligraphy) descended and enveloped me. Two weeks later, Ellen’s husband got a call from one of his friends in California. They wanted to start marketing micrography in their area and asked for Eliezer’s help finding suppliers. Once Ellen heard this, she understood the gift she was being given. She told her husband about doing micro calligraphy herself… and the rest as they say, is history.

Even with her extensive art background, Ellen really just took it one step at a time. Each time she developed a piece she learned something new, starting with the fact that she is the only one in the world to use a calligraphy pen and water color paint to create her pieces. Some of the original pieces taking as much as 11 months to create. The first piece she created was Shir Ha Shirim – . The next two pieces, Ezekiel 36 and Lion of Judah, came as suggestions from her husband. Ellen began creating her micro calligraphy art in 1999, They are available as numbered and signed limited Giclee editions printed on acid free archival quality paper.

Ellen’s unique micro calligraphy art can be found throughout the world, bringing inspiration, hope and joy to people from all backgrounds. Her work is featured in both public and private venues and has also been included as a page in a special women’s prayer book, “Ani Le’ Dodi V’Dodi Li” and as a teaching tool in a Jewish school text book.
