From Wikipedia, the article Live until 120 starts out with “The Jewish blessing May you live until 120 is often written as “til 120” [1] (in Hebrew: עד מאה ועשרים שנה‎; “Ad Mayah Ve-essrim Shana” or in Yiddish “Biz a Hoondred oon Tzvuntzig”).”

A very good article that I think you might enjoy may be read by clicking onto the title, “May You Live to 120 Years Old” by Jennifer Kushell published November 12, 2009 over at Your Success Network.

I also suggest you go over to read the article “Till 120, ON LANGUAGE” by Philologos that was published on December 16, 2005  in The Jewish Daily Forward.

Another good read comes from the Chabad.org Death & Mourning pages; click on over to read “May You Live Until 120…” of The Jewish Mourner’s Companion by Zalman Goldstein.
