As far as I can figure, [x] in the International Phonetic Alphabet is the sound of a voiceless velar fricative.
Good enough for X-Day at ABC Wednesday, no?
So happy [x]anuka! hehe
Today is the 8th and last day of Chanuka.
In Tel Aviv, on one of the fancy streets, this shop was full of many varieties of traditional fried in oil soofganiot (jelly doughnuts).
But I much preferred these simple free ones because of the nice and friendly Chabad man who was offering them to everyone after they lit the Chanuka lights.
This was at HaTachana, the new complex of shops and restaurants that Tel Aviv recently opened.
It is the site of the old Turkish railway station and freight warehouses, etc.
You can see the brown railroad car in the background of the photo.
"Young Chabad" wishes you Happy Chanuka with their happy sign and joyful Jewish music.
Some of my family responded to the music and started dancing.
Some (secular) men joined in the circle, something the religious would not allow back in Jerusalem.
