Chamsa


Chamsa The Chamsa is a common symbol in Jewish lore as the Hand of Miriam or Hamesh Hand, serves as an ancient way of averting the evil eye, or more generally of providing a "protecting hand" or "Hand of God". Some sources link the significance of the five fingers to the five books of the Torah.

It appears as a hand with three fingers raised, and sometimes with two thumbs arranged symmetrically. The symbol is used in amulets, charms, jewelry, door entrances, cars, and other places to ward the evil eye.

In recent years some activists for Middle East peace have chosen to wear the chamsa as a symbol of the similarities of origins and tradition between the Islamic and Jewish faiths.
