There seems to be some confusion surrounding the actual spelling of Chanukah. Part of the reason for this confusion may be due to the fact there is no exact English translation of the Hebrew word for Chanukah.

In fact we have received numerous emails requesting whether these different spellings might also be different holidays. So to help clear up some of the confusion we would like to present a number of the different spellings one might encounter.

Chanuka

Chanukah

Chanukkah

Channukah

Hanukah

Hannukah

Hanukkah

Hanuka

Hanukka

Hanaka

Haneka

Hanika

Khanukkah

While in the United States it is most common to use the spelling “CHANUKAH,” rest assured that they are all the same celebration.

  1. I had to giggle over this because I sent a Christmas card with happy Chanuka wishes handwritten by me to a friend and it took me ten minutes to figure out which spelling to use.

    I feel lucky because I chose Chanuka.

    As a kid growing up, I always saw it spelled with an H.
