Hamsa - the Hamsa Hand, or Hand of Miriam, is one of the original symbols for protection. The hamsa eye-charm is considered to be effective in warding off the influence of envious gazing.
This necklace includes a hamsa amulet, an ancient symbol picturing an opened hand with a palm and five outstretched fingers..
The Talmud says that when Jacob was about to reveal the end of days to his children, he was concerned that one of them might be a non-believer. His sons reassured him immediately and cried out, "Shema Yisrael".
The "Shema Israel" prayer is considered by Observant Jews to be the most important prayer in Judaism. The recitation of Shema Israel, once in the morning and once at night, is a mitzvah, a required Jewish religious commandment.
