Chai is a symbol and word that figures prominently in Jewish Culture and consists of the letters of the Hewbrew Alphabet Het and Yod .
In the Hebrew Language, the word chai spelled by these two letters means "living," is related to the term for "life," chaimm, and also appears in the slogan "`am yisrael chai!" "The nation of Israel lives!", referring to all Jews).
There have been various mystical numerological speculations about the fact that, according to the system of gematria, the letters of chai add up to 18. For this reason, 18 is a lucky number in Judaism, and many Jews give gifts of money in multiples of 18 as a result.
