"The number 18 has special meaning in Judaism (it means Alive in
Gematria; see Chai)."
"The word is made up of two letters of the Hebrew alphabet - Chet (ח)
and Yod (י), forming the word "chai", meaning "alive", or "living"."
"There have been various mystical numerological speculations about the
fact that, according to the system of gematria, the letters of chai add
up to 18 (see "Lamedvavniks" etc.). For this reason, 18 is a spiritual
number in Judaism, and many Jews give gifts of money in multiples of 18
as a result."
