Judaism --> Chai - הי

Judaism as a religion is very focused on life.  The word chai has great significance, and the typical Jewish toast is l'chayim (to life).

Chai comes from the letter Chet ] and Yod [י].  Combining the two letters forms the Hebrew word - הי.  This symbol, commonly seen on necklaces and other jewelry and ornaments.   The meaning of the Hebrew word Chai is "living". Some say it refers to the Living God.  Hebrew reads right to left, while English reads left to right.

The numeric value of Chai is 18 and monetary gifts are generally given in multiples of 18.

The name of the internet site called MileChai is formed from the English word Mile and the Hebrew letter Chai.  Making a play on the phrase "Mile High" City of Denver.

Shalom from the MileChai City of Denver ... wishing you a long and happy life....
