"When a person's good deeds exceed his wisdom, his wisdom will be enduring." - Rabbi Hanina Dendosa Note: The donation amounts listed are computed in multiples of 18. Chai refers to the number 18. That is because each Hebrew letter has a numerical equivalent, and the sum of chet (numerical value of 8) and yud (numerical value of 10) is 18. As a result of its connection to the word for life, the number 18 is considered a special number in Jewish tradition. For this reason, Jews frequently make gifts or charitable contributions in multiples of $18.
