You have a Jewish friend, and you want to say something nice. You want it to be right. But what do you say?
Happy Chanukah in Hebrew: Chanukah Sameach! (kha-noo-kah sah-MAY-akh)
Happy Chanukah in Yiddish: A Fraylichen Chanukah! (ah FRAY-leekh-en KHA-noo-kah)
And if someone says one of those to you? Say it right back!

Chanukah Sameach! Thanks for your gift of this blog and your posts!
Thank you for sharing this! I’ve only ever known Mazel Tov and L’chaim, so these are useful. Have a joyous Chanukah!
