- The hand-shaped Hamsa is a traditional symbol of protection in both Jewish and Islamic cultures - an eye in the middle represents immunity from the evil eye. It's often painted on the walls of homes or worn as a lucky charm. If the Hamsa symbol resonates with you, carry it at times of potential vulnerability - whether as an amulet, or visualized in your mind.
