1. A Yiddish expression meaning "to life!", used mainly during toasts, so much so that at a Jewish celebration one does not propose a toast, one proposes a l'chaim.
2. Used instead of "let's have a round of schnapps" among Chasidic men.
"I propose a l'chaim to Yussel on his new baby!" said Rabbi Eliyahu McClain. The rest of the congregation followed suit raiseing their glasses and shouting "L'Chaim!"
