Recently I received an email asking about left arm injuries and breaks and their significance: “Hello, I just want to know, from a Jewitch perspective, if there is any meaning behind a person who is constantly hurting their left arm. A friend of mine has had three breaks and three surgeries on their left arm. Please note: this person is right handed. Thanks.” To respond to this, we’ll delve into definitions, symbolism, angels, Kabbalah, tefillin, Jewish mysticism, the evil eye and the Torah.
Marks on heads, hands, arms, and on buildings are symbolically and spiritually significant. Arms and hands are symbols of strength. “Zeroah” is the Hebrew word for arm, meaning “the stretched out arm: force, help, mighty, power, shoulder, strength etc.”
