Cat # : JUS23
Chai pendants are popular choices as Jewish jewelry gifts. It’s worn by both men and women, and has been infused with a variety of meanings that make it a particularly meaningful piece to wear.
The Hebrew word “chai” means “life.” It’s a deceptively simple two letter word made up of the Hebrew letters “chet” and “yud.” In the Jewish tradition, each Hebrew letter has a numeric value as well.
The sum of the Chai’s two Hebrew letters equals 18, which has made 18 an especially auspicious number in the Jewish tradition. For this reason, some believe that a Chai pendant has special protective or luck-bearing properties.
