The Hebrew word Life

$92.00 $80.96

The Hebrew word “Life” (חי CHAI, which has a numerical value of 18) engraved on an authentic Jerusalem stone hand made silver pendant.

The Chai symbol can be worn by Jews as a medallion around the neck, similarly to other Jewish symbols, such as the  Star of David and the Hamsa.

Jews often give gifts and donations in multiples of 18, which is called “giving chai”.

Mailings from Jewish charities usually suggest the amounts to give in multiples of chai (18, 36, 54 dollars, etc.) rather than the usual multiples of 25.
