‘Chai,’ the Hebrew word for life, was taken from the motif of one of the beautiful 18th century Italian linen Torah binders at the Jewish Museum. Presented at a boy’s birth, the binder is customized to include the boy’s name, birth date and blessings. ‘Chai’ also expresses the wish for health and longevity.
