What does the Hamsa mean?

Originating in North Africa and the Middle East, the hand-shaped Hamsa symbol represents divine protection against the evil eye as well as blessings and power. Due to its association with protection against the evil eye, many Hamsas feature an eye symbol in its palm.

Can anyone wear the Hamsa hand?

What is the significance of the Hamsa in Judaism?

Hung in homes as an amulet and worn as a talisman on necklaces and other jewelry, the Hamsa is a symbol of Divine protection and 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.

In Judaism, some people also connect the Hamsa with the Exodus from Egypt, as it says that "God took Israel out of Egypt with a strong hand and an outstretched arm." Some Jews also view the five fingers of the Hamsa as a reminder to serve God with all five senses.

The Hamsa is often used in kabbalah and Jewish mysticism, as a symbol of holiness and Creation, with the power to neutralize negative energies and forces as well as protect from unseen dangers.

Where does the Hamsa come from in Judaism?

The Hamsa is one of the oldest Jewish symbols; its imagery has been found on ancient Israelite tombs dating all the way back to the 8th century BCE!

Over time it became a common Middle Eastern and North African motif, often used by Sephardic Jews and adopted by non-Jewish traditions as well. It is also sometimes called the "Hand of Miriam" or the "Palm of David."

The Hamsa is depicted as an open right hand, often with an eye in the center of the palm and sometimes adorned with fish or other symbols of protection and luck. The hand can either be pointing up or down, fingers spread or close together, and many believe even the smallest of details have an impact in the Hamsa's protection.

The practice of specifically wearing or keeping a Hamsa amulet in one’s home for protection has been found all over the Middle East, North Africa, and Jewish communities in both Israel and the diaspora for centuries.
