The Hamsa Hand or Chamsa is a Jewish symbol that depicts five fingers and serves as a methaphorical reminder of the Hand of God.
The word Hamsa, חמסה (CHAM-sah), is an Arabic word meaning five, which is derived from the same root as the Hebrew word for five, חמש (chah-MESH).
The Hamsa is used as a sign of protection to fend away negative spiritual forces caused by the jealousy of others.
Many of the blessings we feature are etched on a Hamsa hand or are just decorative Hamsa's that you can hang on your walls to not only provide blessing but ward off evil.
