“Eat thou not the bread of him that hath an evil eye, neither desire thou his dainties.” (Proverbs 23:6)
In the scriptures, the “evil eye” is often associated with jealousy and In Kabalistic lore, according to one interpretation, the “Hamsa” (“five” in Arabic) hand, with the evil eye at its center, is deemed to be imbued with mystic powers to fight off malice resulting from such jealousy. Over the eons, in Judaism, and other religions and cultures, the Hamsa has become one of the most iconic and popular talismans for protection from evil and harbinger of good fortune. Here, at Shalom House, we have put together a stunning collection of Hamsas, designed by world-renown artists and forged by master craftspeople. So… come, take a look, and wrap yourself in the mystic protection provided by wearing one of these talismanic artifacts or hanging one in your home.
