Welcome to our Wooden Khamsa collection. Find here a unique best quality Khamsa hand. Our wooden Khamsa hands were handmade in Israel under the spirit of peaceful Judaism. The Khamsa is a symbol used in amulets, charms and jewelry to protect against the "evil eye." An alternative Jewish name is the Hand of Miriam, in reference to Miriam, the sister of Moses and Aaron. The Khamsa Hand is a mystic kind of "protecting hand" or "hand of God". This symbolism may have evolved at a later stage, in view of the fact that archaeological evidence suggests the Khamsa predates both Judaism and Islam religions. In recent years some activists for peace have chosen to wear the Khamsa as a symbol of the similarities of origins and tradition between the Islamic and Jewish faiths.
