In Judaism, every Hebrew letter corresponds to a number, in a system known as ‘gematriya’. The number 18 is especially meaningful because it corresponds to the Hebrew letters ‘Yud’ (10) and ‘Khet’ (8) which spells חי/chai, meaning ‘live’. In today’s verse, the words “You shall live,” directly connect the blessing of life to living in the Land of Israel. We give thanks to God every day not only for our lives, but for allowing us to “live and increase and come and possess the Land!”
