Hamsa Aleph represents a visual meditation on the Oneness of G-d. The letter Aleph is the glyph used for the number one (each letter of the Hebrew alphabet has a numerical value) and symbolizes the joining of heaven and earth through the interaction of each of us.

The Hamsa, a universal symbol of “The Hand of G-d” found in many cultures, lends itself to meditations on unity. In Jewish tradition it is often used as an amulet of protection from negative influences.

Please take time to pause and breathe in the Oneness of G-d, pause and take time in your day to feel the protective Hand of the Creator of all life, the One who plants all seeds in the womb of creation. You are one, here on earth to fulfill your unique destiny.

Feel the tender palm of the One who believes in you guiding you on your journey, in joy and in peace.
