The Star or Shield of David (Magen David in Hebrew) originated in ancient Jewish tradition. Some believe that the six points of the star represents God’s rule over the universe in all directions: north, south, east, west, up and down. Others believe that the two triangles, which point in opposite directions, are symbols of the duality of human nature or the relationship between God and man. The hamsa hand is an ancient Middle Eastern amulet that protects against the “evil eye.” It is a protective sign and brings its owner happiness, luck, health, and good fortune. Five (hamesh in Hebrew) represents the five books of the Torah for Jews. In the Jewish religion, the Jewish hamsa hand also symbolizes the Hand of Miriam, the sister of Moses and Aaron. The symbol of the hand appears in manuscripts of the Kabbalah. Although the hamsa hand has been symbolic in Islam and Judaism for centuries, archaeological digs provide evidence that the hamsa predates these religions and originated with the Phoenicians. This makes a beautiful gift for a Bar-Mitzvah, Bat-Mitzvah, Jewish wedding, a housewarming gift, or for any occasion and comes in a nice gift box with my card.
