Chai, which means, "Life," is one of the most recognizable Hebrew words in Judaism. Comprised of two letters - Chet (the 8th letter of the Hebrew alphabet) and Yud (the 10th letter of the Hebrew alphabet), together they form the word "Chai" and their numerical value totals 18. "Chai" is a wish for a good life and "Líchaim," means "to life" - a festive expression often said upon making a toast and drinking a glass of wine.
Jewish Gift Place is proud to carry a large Chai necklace and bracelet collection. With beautiful Chai jewelry made from silver, gold, pewter, dichroic glass, enamel, and Swarovski crystals, the pieces range from traditional to modern. A Chai necklace is a wonderful gift to give for a Bar or Bat Mitzvah, or for anyone who wants to proudly wear this Hebrew word with such deep meaning in Judaism.
