Fish Amulets - Fish Hamsa Amulet for Prosperity | Unique Spiritual Gifts & Charm Jewelry
This hamsa charm has a double significance, especially during this time of year in keeping with the Jewish New Year of Rosh Hashanah. The hamsa itself is an open-palmed hand, showing both openness and the sometimes difficult trait of mentally "stopping" and keeping cool, even, or especially, when angry. The significance of the two fish in the center stems from a verse in Genesis where Jacob blesses his grandchildren Efraim and Menashe to "multiply like fish" in the land of Israel. Fish, surrounded by water, represent the all encompassing comfort one has when immersed in his true environment, just as the fish is completely enveloped in its liquid environs. On Rosh Hashanah, there is a prevalent custom to eat the head of a fish to remind us of the necessity to be constantly enveloped by the Creator of the Universe.
