By RABBI SAMUEL FOX

(Copyright 1980, JTA, Inc.)
It is customary to express

the greeting "L'Chayim" (to
life) when drinking into-
xicating liquors. One reason
for doing this refers to the
practice of serving wine to
mourners to ease their grief.
Likewise, defendants who
were to be executed were
also served wine to ease
their concern.
To make sure that the
drink taken or offered
otherwise is not a drink re-
ferring to death, the expres-
sion "L'Chayim" is offered.
The second reason has to
do with the offering of wine
to ease a person into talk-
ing. Upon drinking wine or
intoxicating beverages one
offers the expression of
"L'Chayim" as a sort of wish
that the ensuing talk will be
of religious value to
enhance one's life and not to
forfeit it.

The earliest and oldest
and longest has still the
mastery of us.
— George Eliot
