Mazel Tov Mazal Tov Bar Mitzvah Greeting Card in Orange Yellow & Green Shades Original Hamsa Design Silhouette Papercut Handmade OOAK
The Hand (Khamsa, Hamsa, Hamsah) has long represented blessings, power and strength and is thus seen as potent in deflecting the evil eye. In Islamic tradition, the hand of Fatima "represents the hand of God, divine power, providence and generosity”.
Five (hamesh-5- in Hebrew) represents the five books of the Torah for Jews, thus appropriate for Bar Mitzvah & Bat Mitzvah wishes. It also symbolizes the fifth letter of the Hebrew alphabet, Hey, which represents one of God's holy names.
Many Jews believe that the five fingers of the Hamsa hand remind its wearer to use their five senses to praise God.
The Hand (Khamsa) was adopted and used by Jews living in the Islamic world, and recognized as a bearer of good fortune among Christians and Muslims as well.
There are two main styles of a hamsa hand: the stylized hamsa hand with two symmetrical thumbs, and hamsa hands that are not symmetrical and shaped like actual hands. Either hamsa hand can be worn with the fingers pointing up or down.
The renewed interest in Kabbalah and mystical Judaism is a factoring in bringing the hamsa pendant back into vogue. Sometimes hamsas are inscribed with Hebrew prayers, such as the Sh’ma, Birkat HaBayit (Blessing for the Home), or Tefilat HaDerech (Traveler’s Prayer).
