Mama Said and community partner, BZBI temple, join together to explore the subject of child protection and freedom with Jewish mothers using the Hamsa. The Hamsa is an ancient symbol in both Judaism and Islam faiths that represents "The Hand of the Holy Woman". The Hamsa is a symbol of strength, protection and blessings across all faiths. Using this symbol, Mama said will help mothers to examine and navigate the critical subject of protecting their child while allowing them freedom to explore their world.
