Hannukah dance . . . " Two
different transliterations for
the same letter and two diff-
erent spellings for the day —
ridiculous!
Rabbis conjure up their
own versions. Newspapers
and magazines are ar-
bitrary. Jewish publications
carry 10 variations in one
issue. Advertisers, for
reasons known only to them-
selves and surely not to God,
because in His infinite
wisdom He avoids such petty
arguments, make up their
own spelling.
The time has come to do
something about a uniform
spelling for the name of this
holiday. Purim presents no
problem; Pesah is also accep-
table, even Pesach. Rosh
Hashanah and Yom Kippur
(although why the double P
when there's only one P in
Hebrew) are the norm, but
poor Feast of the Maccabees.
I have a solution to pro-
pose. In Russian the letter X
has the equivalent sound for
the "I(11" sound, or "CH" as
in Bach, or Ich or Loch. So
few words begin with X in
English that this would
solve the problem without
causing too much confusion.
Make it XANUKA and
you've got it. The X could
also be used for foreign
names and words using that
sound that come into our
language and need a precise
spelling. Introducing the X
would be the closest to the
sound, which is what
transliteration is intended to
do.
Russians laugh XA, XA,
XA and not CHA, CHA,
CHA, which is related to the
mambo. Why not establish
the X as the equivalent for
the sound from Hebrew? Let
the conferences of rabbis, the
Conference of Presidents of
Major Jewish Organizations,
the Union of American Heb-
rew Congregations, the Jew-
ish Telegraphic Agency,
Hadassah, the Jewish Mu-
seum, the UJA, B'nai B'rith,
Agudath Israel and all the
other Jewish organizations
and institutions plus the
major American newspapers
including the New York
Times and the Washington
Post decide once and for all
that the way to write the
eight-day holiday is Xanuka.
Or is that too much
XUTSPA? If the "X" is
unacceptable, let's settle on
Khanukah and everyone
will be Khappy. It is time
that the Jewish people
agreed on at least one thing.
Who can tell where such
agreement might lead?
HAPPY XANUKA! ❑
