**** These letters are an acronym for the Hebrew words
תהא נפשו/ה צרורה בצרור החיים
(t'hay nafsho/ah tzrurah b'tzror hachaim), "May his/her soul be bound up in the bond of life." This paraphrases the words that Abigail told King David in the 1st book of samuel 25: 29 "But my lord's soul shall be bound in the bond of life with the L-rd your G‑d."
