Jewish Amulets , jewish symbol, kabbalah amulets

 

kabbalah amulets have been in use by many generations of Jews throughout the many different areas of the world in which Jews have resided. kabbalah amulets, also called “Kemeot” in Hebrew, often reflect those precise cultures from which these Jewish amulets come. That is one of the reasons that there are such diverse kinds of Jewish amulets. Jewish amulets are either worn on one’s body as bracelets or necklaces for example, or might be hung up in the home, as Hamsa’s for example. kabbalah amulets often include some Biblical passage or a passage from the jewish tradition  or could include some form of Jewish symbol.

The various types of Jewish amulets / kabbalah amulets

One of the better known Jewish amulets is the Hamsa, or “hand amulet”, an amulet shaped as a palm of a hand. These are very stylistically designed in many ways. Many homes host a large variety of such hamsas, both as amulets and for their beauty and the liveliness they add to a household. Hamsas originate in traditions of Jewish communities in North Africa and the Middle East, and are intended to protect against the “evil eye”.

Another popular form of kabbalah amulets and the jewish symbol is the various necklaces many Jews wear, which include Jewish symbols. Such amulets could include the Star of David, the seven-candle Menorah, or the “Chai” (meaning “life”). They are both a symbol of who their wearers are, a symbol of pride in being Jewish, as well as an amulet for good luck and protection for those who wear them.

There are also Crown amulets, symbolizing the Crown of the Torah, and therefore how much learning is important in Jewish culture. Such amulets are also told to refer to King David, the builder of Jerusalem.

Another very popular form of amulet is “Birkat Habayit” or “house blessing”, an amulet usually hung on a wall at the entrance to the house as an ornament, blessing the house, its residents and those who comes within its doors with abundance, safety and well-being. House blessings could be made out of various materials, and designed with various designs and styles.

Why use Jewish symbols , kabbalah amulets?
