Tefillin
Tefillin, phylactery, are described as an “Ote,” a sign, of the covenant between HaShem, G-d, and Israel: A set of Tefillin has the “Shel Rosh” (head-phylactery) and the “Shel Yad” (arm-phylactery) with corresponding straps. The Shel Rosh and Shel Yad each contain four passages, hand written on parchment, from the Torah: Exodus 13: 1-10, 11-16, Deuteronomy 6: 4-9, 11: 13-21. The Shel Yad, worn bound to the forearm, parallel to the heart, represents HaShem’s strength and the directing of our hearts and emotions to His service. We each dedicate our intellect and thoughts to HaShem with the crowning of the Shel Rosh on our head. Thirteen is when a young man reaches the age of accountability for the Torah and HaShem’s mitzvahs, commandments. He becomes a Bar Mitzvah and begins donning Tefillin.

Using micro calligraphy, Ellen Miller Braun’s beautiful design repeats these four Torah portions, four times each. The words form the outline of the Shel Rosh and Shel Yad and fill the front (black area) of the Tefillin’s straps. The back of the straps (gray areas) are created using the blessings, recitations and declaration of intent that are recited before and during the laying of Tefillin. Using flowing red ink, Ellen repeats the words “Shel Rosh” filling the head phylactery box, while the words “Shel Yad” fill the arm phylactery box. This entire piece is framed and embraced by the prayer that is the core and essence of Judaism: “She’ma Israel HaShem Elokeinu, HaShem Echad” (Hear, O Israel: HaShem is our G-d, HaShem is One.) Boldly centered at the bottom of the frame is the word “Tefillin.” This piece flows with beauty and grace, as well as being a source of strength and spirituality.

In gematria, Jewish numerology, the letter “dalet”, the fourth letter of the Hebrew alphabet, equals the number four. The word dalet/delet means door. Your prayers are a personal doorway to HaShem. With the donning of Tefillin and daily prayer, you are given the opportunity to open a door between yourself and The Holy One Blessed Be He. May all of your prayers be answered.

With loving attention and precision, Ellen Miller Braun can craft a spiritually uplifting, personalized semi-original just for this cherished moment, creating a most unique gift, sure to be treasured for a lifetime. (Contact us at [email protected] if you would like to personalize this gift)

The beautiful Calligraphy Bible Art pictures are created from Hebrew words and letters. The Hebrew words are taken from the Bible and create a beautiful picture while inspiring at the same time. Ellen creates her Bible Art using very small letters which are called micro calligraphy. The finished product is a beautiful picture created from these small letters. Micrography is another term used for this kind of art. Ellen chose the term micro calligraphy for her bible art to express the exact meaning of her work: tiny letters and words blending together to create the designs and figures on her paper. Ellen creates her micro calligraphy art by using her fine tipped calligraphy pen and dips it into a spectrum of water color paints. The secret to micro calligraphy art is patience. The pictures take anywhere from one month to a year, to create each original piece.
