The symbol Chai is comprised of two letters of the Hebrew aleph-bet, a chet (ח) and a yud (י). It means “life” as in “L’Chaim” – the traditional Hebrew toast. Chai has the numerical value of 18 . Therefore, donations to charity are often made in multiples of 18 to signify life.
Olive wood carvings come only from the trimmings of olive trees, which is an essential process for healthy and proper growth of the trees, and to promote environmental sustainability. The olive wood is then dried and cured before it is used for carving.
