Peace in the Middle East

Standard

  Hebrew: Welcome
Arabic: In the Name of God (the Womb One) of Benevolence and Compassion

The hamsa is a shared symbol of the Arabs and Sephardic Jews. The word in Hebrew for hand is yad. Two hands together spell the word yedid in Hebrew – friendship. An apt symbol for rekindling the kinship.
