YOUR SUPPORT IS WELCOME AND NEEDED: BUT WHY THE 18s?
18 is the numerical value of the Hebrew word “life,” and it is customary to donate in multiples of 18. It’s a toast to life (l’hayim) and a harmless bit of folk belief. (It’s also a good way of keeping tabs on charitable donations – when the Police Benevolent League says you gave $36 last year (not $35) you can believe them.) The following are some of your favorite JUST events and what they cost.
Please let us acknowledge your support in our next newsletter:
