Video Clip of the Bedtime Shema

Video Clip: All Calligraphy Designs by Ellen Miller Braun

Video Clip: Section Enlargements of Calligraphy Designs

With winsome charm, innocence and joy, Ellen Miller Braun’s bedtime menagerie radiates a glow from within. From slumbering hippo to tumbling mice, dreamy butterflies and endearing, sleepy teddy bears, Ellen brings a feeling of calm serenity as one and all cuddle up cozy for a sleepy night of peace and tranquility.

Watching a young child recite the bedtime prayer, Shema, is a cherished moment that creates an enchanting, timeless memory. This heartwarming micro calligraphy artwork comes to life with the repetition of these four prominent, spiritually uplifting sections:

“Hear O Israel: Hashem is our G-d, HaShem, the One and Only” Deuteronomy 6: 4

Every night we teach even the youngest of children the wonder and joy of reaffirming our Faith and Love of HaShem.

“…you shall love HaShem your G-d with all your Heart…”

Deuteronomy 10: 5-9

Looking like glowing, sleepy angels themselves, this colorful collection of furry friends recite Jacob’s prayer…:

“HaMalach HaGoel oti mikol rah…” The angel who redeems me from all evil…Genesis 48: 16

…calling on HaShem to dispatch an angel to bring a blessing on his grandsons, Ephraim and Menashe. May this blessing extend to all of our beloved children.

Further protection is garnered with this most inspirational verse, requesting the presence of G-d’s angels during the night:
“In the Name of HaShem, G-d of Israel: may Michael be at my right” – performing His unique miracles – “Gabriel at my left” – the emissary of His almighty power – “Uriel before me” – carrying the Light of HaShem – “and Raphael behind me” – bringing HaShem’s healing – “and above my head the Presence of G-d.”

Sleep tight little ones….Sweet dreams….Amen!

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.
