Ellen Miller Braun uses four special prayers and blessings in this graceful rendition of Shabbat Candles.
Cascading down the center of this exquisite design, Ellen Miller Braun inscribed the Hebrew 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.”
Delicate tropical flowers meander gracefully upward, creating these two breathtaking floral candlesticks, inscribed in micro calligraphy with the words of Proverbs 31:10-31. Flickering flames dance in front of us with the blessing beseeching G-d 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 matriarchs, that our candle lights will not be extinguished, that G-d’s countenance will shine on us.*
The blessing for the children creates an everlasting halo, shimmering around each of the Shabbat candle flames. The blessing of Ephraim and Manasseh glimmers around the right flame, blessing our sons. The blessing of Sarah, Rebecca, Rachel and Leah, shines around the left flame, blessing our daughters.**
Peaceful Shabbat splendor radiates outward, illuminating this artwork, our homes and 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 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, Rebecca, 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.
