The Hamsa is one of the most popular and widespread symbols in the Middle East, with a long history in the Land of Israel and Jewish tradition as well. The symbol looks like an open palm and is meant to be reminiscent of the Hand of God, in order to invoke protection, luck, and peace.

Hung in homes as an amulet, the Hamsa is Judaism's most famous good-luck charm. It's believed to safeguard from negative energies and the Evil Eye, and to bring luck, happiness, success, fortune, and harmony. Some Jews also view the five fingers of the Hamsa as a reminder to serve God with all five senses.

Many Israeli artists and designers incorporate the Hamsa into stunning Jewish wall art, sculptures, and traditional home blessings. Hamsa-themed Jewish art makes for a beautiful and thoughtful gift for a wedding, house warming, birthday, or any other special occasion - or as a meaningful adornment for your own home.
