More About the Hamsa - The symbol of the hand in Mediterranean cultures is ancient, especially in warding of the evil eye. There are speculations that the Jews were among the first to use it as a protective amulet, also called 'Hand of Miriam'. This tradition predates the Muslim use of the Hamsa (called the hand of Fatima, daughter of Mohammed) by at least a thousand years.

The hamesh hand or hamsa hand is a popular motif in Jewish jewelry. The design commonly has an eye in the center of the hand or various Jewish letters in the middle.

There is nothing exclusively Jewish about the hamesh hand. Arab cultures often refer to it as the Hand of Fatima or Hand of Destiny, which represents the Hand of G-d.

The hamsa hand (Arabic) or chamesh hand (Hebrew) is an old and still popular amulet for magical protection from the evil eye known to draw positive energy, happiness, riches and health. The Chamsa’s (semitic root meaning five) includes five digits and symbolizes the Creator’s protective hand. Five is by itself a number which is known as a protector.
