Hanukkah Day 8: L'Chaim

In Hebrew, "l'chaim" is a customary toast that means "to life." According to the Talmud, whenever two people share a drink, it brings them closer together. Add in the interpretation from the Tzemach Tzedek that says when two Jews share a drink together and toast "l'chaim," they bring down peace and blessings into the world and you get a powerful toast in just a few words.
