The Chai symbol is made of the two Hebrew letters Chet and Yod. Chai means Life and the numeric value of those two letters is eighteen‚ a popular number that represents good luck. It is very common to donate eighteen shekels or dollars for a good cause‚ or often to give a multiple of Chai‚ eighteen‚ like 36‚ 48 etc.
Same tradition of giving multiplies of Chai gifts goes with gifts for birthdays‚ Bar and Bat Mitzvah‚ engagements‚ or weddings.
When Jewish people toast they say Lechaim which means let drink to life! Lechaim is said at celebrations in anticipation of the good things we hope to come true in life.
Artist integrated the Chai symbol into artwork and integrated Chai into jewelry like pendants and bracelets. Thus the wearer feels protected by the Chai symbol and relates to it as a talisman.
By giving an item with the Chai for life symbol‚ like a piece of jewelry Chai pendant‚ Chai necklace‚ Chai earrings‚ or artwork with Chai integrated into it‚ you express your wishes for a good and long life. A Chai gift is a wish for a long and healthy life.
At Gans we also have gift certificates for every occasion that you can give with whatever Chai nomination you will decide on. A Chai gift certificate will enable the recipient to choose from the extensive collection of Chai‚ or other‚ items we offer.
