The red string (like a talisman) is a custom associated with Judaism's Kabbalah in order to ward off misfortune brought about by an "evil eye".
The Hamsa (Chamsa) Hand (Arabic) or Hamesh Hand (Hebrew) is an old and still popular apotropaic amulet for magical protection from the evil eye. The words hamsa and hamesh mean "five" and refer to the digits on the hand. It’s referred also as hand of Fatima and hand of Miriam. For centuries the Hamsa has been used as a symbol of Good luck and shields its owner from the curse of the evil eye. The Hamsa's positive energy draws happiness, riches and health.
