Thanks so much Jackie, this is a quick pattern so hopefully your daughter will enjoy it! I personally spell it Chanukah, with the ch to represent the guttural Chet letter in Hebrew. Most hebrew words translated into english use an H, which is so confusing…..even today my kids tease me because I though Haifa was pronounced as spelled in English, and it is not, it also starts with a Chet. Reading signs translated into English in Israel is quite a comedy as there is no standard! The town I live in is spelled about five different ways when translated into English…..so it goes! Have a wonderful Chanukah!
