The HAMSA is from the Semitic root meaning “five” and for centuries it has been used as a symbol of good luck. Originating in the Middle East, the Hamsa represents G-d’s protective hand and it is believed that its positive energy draws health, wealth and happiness. Our Hamsa door harp is based on this symbol. A powerful talisman, the Hamsa Hand is an ancient Middle Eastern amulet symbolizing the Hand of God. In all faiths it is a protective sign. It brings its owner happiness, luck, health, and good fortune.
The symbol of an eye embedded in the palm of an open hand has had several names throughout the ages, including the Hamsa, the eye of Fatima, the hand of Fatima, and the hand of Miriam. The form is sometimes rendered naturally and other times symmetrically with a second thumb replacing the little finger.
The Hamsa has been variously interpreted by scholars as a Jewish, Christian, or Islamic amulet, and as a pagan fertility symbol. Yet even as the magical form remains shrouded in mystery and scholars debate nearly every aspect of its emergence, it is recognized today as a kabbalistic amulet and as an important symbol in Jewish art.
