Hamsa Hand Chai Pendant: "Hexagon
Magen David Design"
Hamsa Hand: the symbol of the hand (Hamsa, Semitic root meaning five) in Mediterranean cultures is ancient. There are speculations that the Jews were among the first to use it as a protective amulet. This tradition predates the Muslim use of the Hamsa (called the hand of Fatima, daughter of Mohammed) by at least a thousand years. The hand symbolizes the Creator's protective hand, and is at times decorated with an eye (the Creators watchful eye). When the eye is blue the intend is to ward off evil spirits. The hand is also known as Miriam's Hand.
The letter SHIN is an acronym for Sha-dd-ai translated as "The Almighty" or "Powerful One". This is often used on amulets as protection against magic.
