In Judaism, eighteen is the numerical value of the Hebrew word “chai,” which means “life.” It has therefore become a Jewish custom to give monetary gifts or charity in increments of 18, thus symbolically blessing the recipient of the gift with a good long life. Please also consider making your donation today one that keeps on giving year-after-year by ticking the appropriate box. Our ‘living’ museum is deeply grateful for each individual chai ($18) pledged by friends, which helps breathe continuous life into our collection.
