Quick Overview

Hamsa Hand Meaning

The Hamsa hand is said to symbolize the five books of the Torah: Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers and Deuteronomy.

Some call these books “The Five Books of Moses”. Genesis starts with telling the story of the creation of the world and Deuteronomy ends with Moses dying in the land of Moab.

It may sometimes also be called “The Hand of Miriam”.

Miriam was the sister of Moses and Aron. Moses led the Israelites out of Egypt. Aron became the first High Priest.

Miriam played an important role in the story of Moses and was highly respected.

Legend has it that it was due to Miriam’s virtues that the Israelites always found water during the forty years they wondered through the desert on their way towards the Promised land.

The well that seemed to follow the people of Israel is according to legend called Miriam’s well.

So Miriam came to represent protection, luck and happiness.
