Video Clip of Shabbat Candles Calligraphy Design

Video Clip: All Calligraphy Designs by Ellen Miller Braun

Video Clip: Section Enlargements of Calligraphy Designs

Ellen Miller Braun uses four special blessings and prayers in this graceful rendition of Lighting of the Shabbat Candles. We begin with the blessing Woman of Valor; Proverbs 31. The intoxicating scent of a tropical bouquet of flowers fills the air, creating two beautiful candlesticks which represents the woman who is the base and foundation of the home.

The flow and grace of Woman of Valor leads us to the candles’ flames as they dance before our eyes. The flames are flickering with the blessing beseeching HaShem to show us favor and bless our household; that our deeds be in the service of the Creator. We pray that in the merit of Sarah, Rebecca, Rachel and Leah, our foremothers, that our candle lights will not be extinguished, that HaShems’s countenance shines so that we are saved.*

The blessing of the children creates an everlasting halo, shimmering around each of the Shabbat candle flames, creating a warm, constant glow. The blessing of Efraim and Manasseh glimmers around the right flame, blessing our sons. The blessing of Sarah, Rebecca, Rachel and Leah, shines constant around the left flame, blessing our daughters.**These halos reflect the pride and joy of each mother’s pedestal.

Cascading down the center of this exquisite, delicate, micro calligraphy design, Ellen inscribed, in Hebrew, the blessing:

“Blessed are You, HaShem, our G-d, King of the universe, Who sanctified us with His commandments, and has commanded us to kindle the light of the Sabbath.”

Peaceful Shabbat splendor radiates outward, illuminating this artwork, our homes and our lives with warmth and comfort, as we recite the ancient Blessing over the candles welcoming in the Shabbat. May your home and family be so blessed. Shabbat Shalom

* “Yehi ratzon” – May it be Your will HaShem, my G-d and G-d of my forefathers, that You show favor to me [my sons, my daughters, my father, my mother, my husband] and all my relatives.; and that You grant us and all Israel a good and long life; that You remember us with a beneficent memory and blessing: that You bless us with great blessings; that You make our households complete; that You cause Your Presence to dwell among us. Privilege me to raise children and grandchildren who are wise and understanding, who love HaShem and fear G-d, people of truth, holy offspring, attached to HaShem, who illuminate the world with Torah and good deeds and with every labor in the service of the Creator, Please, hear my supplication at this time, in the merit of Sarah, Rebekah, Rachel, and Leah, our mothers, and cause our light to illuminate that it be not extinguished forever, and let Your countenance shine so that we are saved. Amen.

**For Daughters:

May G-d make you like Sarah, Rachel, Rebekah and Leah

May the L-rd bless you and protect you.

May the L-rd countenance you and be gracious to you;

May the L-rd favor you and grant you peace.

**For Sons:

May G-d make you like Ephriam and Manasseh

May the L-rd bless you and protect you.

May the L-rd countenance you and be gracious to you;

May the L-rd favor you and grant you peace.

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.

In addition Ellen lectures on the development of this fascinating Jewish art form, bringing another layer of insight to the history of Israel and the Jewish people.
