Hey, what's up with the number 18? In the Hebrew alphabet, each letter is assigned a numerical value. The Hebrew letters that comprise the word "Chai" add up to 18. The word "Chai" (pronounced as in 'hi'; not as in the tea!) means life. Therefore the number 18 is a lucky number to Jewish people because it is associated with "life". Often times monetary gifts are given in increments of 18 for good luck. Additionally, you may have heard the toast, "l'chaim" which means "to life!"
