Happy (3rd night of) Hanukkah!
This video was taken at the community school in Neve Shalom-Wahat al-Salam — named in both Hebrew and Arabic — children learn both languages at a very young age, thus cultivating a spirit of communication and mutual understanding.
Did You Know?
You can spell hanukkah in one of multiple ways. That’s because the spelling in English is a transliteration of the Hebrew phonetics. Transliteration is the writing of a letter or word using the closest corresponding letters of a different alphabet or language. Listen to Rabbi Zemel and NPR’s Robert Siegel discuss the reasons for the multiple spellings of Chanukah.
