Judaica Baby Room Decor - Hamsa Heart with Blessing
It is a beautiful tradition to place a Hamsa in the crib of a new-born baby, a gift which carries a message - I want you and your baby to be granted all that is good and wholesome.
The Hamsa hand is an ancient amulet that wards off the evil eye and brings good fortune to the one who wears or uses it.
This pretty Hamsa, designed by the well-known artist Yealat Chen, is made of a hard-wearing metal known as zamak. At the top is a pretty heart with appropriate engravings of a butterfly, fish, flower and snail. At the base is a moving prayer that the new baby will be a source of joy and light.
