Hi I found this fossil while on a hike in the Negev desert in Israel. It has been bugging me for years and I hope someone can help me identify it? (hand for scale)

I would guess the hinge of a bivalve mollusk.

 

Let's see what others say.

For your information, a hand isn't a good scale, because not all are the same size. The best way is to indicate the size in inches or cm ;)

I'd rather get kicked in the hinge. :D

That would be considered experimental anthropology though. :)
