Israel has a long and tragic history of challenges and battles trying to blossom in the harsh desert of political and religious conflict. But just as the Sabra Cactus has succeeded to survive in Eretz Israel, so have the Jewish people learned to thrive in their G-d given Land. It is not just the Jewish people who are blessed- all the peoples of the earth can receive God’s blessings if they adhere to God’s call as written in Genesis 12: 2-3. “And I will make of you a great nation and I will bless you and make your name great and you shall be a blessing; and I will bless them that bless you and curse him that curses you and in you shall all the families of the earth be blessed.”
Ellen Miller Braun has epitomized this symbol of Israel using micro calligraphy, by creating a Sabra Cactus inscribed with the Biblical commandment for the nations to Bless the “Apple of His Eye”-the Jewish People. The Land of Israel, at first glance, may seem to be mostly desert without much color and inspiration. A closer look shows us the beauty that is the Holy Land. Just as Ellen’s micro calligraphy cactus starts with a simple green base, so is Israel’s beginning simple. We follow this detailed micro calligraphy piece up the thorny cactus stalk to the beautiful, blooming intricate yellow and red flower. Similarly, Israel’s history blooms with complexity. Like the cactus with its sweet, rich, red fruit and abundance of seeds, this 2000 year old history also branches out depositing its “seeds.” During 2000 years of both willing and unwilling wandering, the Jewish people spread to all four corners of the earth, planting Judaism and G-d’s sweet seed of knowledge, light and the hope of world redemption.
May your love of Israel bear beautiful fruits of blessing for you and your loved ones. Amen
