עס איז חנוכה
רבקה און מידל גיין אין גאס. עס איז היינט א יום-טוב. עס איז חנוכה. עס איז קאלט אין דרויסן אבער די זון שיינט. עס בלאזט ניט קיין ווינט און עס גייט ניט קיין שניי. די מיידלעך גיין צו דער באבען

 דארטן קריגן זיי גוטע הייסע לאטקעס און חנוכה-געלט. זיי לאכן און זיינען פריילעך. זיי האבן ליב דעם יום-טוב

It is Hanuka
Rivka and Midl are walking on the street. It is a Jewish holiday today. It is Hanuka. It is cold outside but the sun is shining. It is not winding and it is now snowing. The girls are going to the grandmothers.

There they get nice latkes and Hanuka money. They laugh and are happy. They like the Jewish holiday.

 
NOTES:

 

יום-טוב

Literally means "Day-good" but is the word for a Jewish religious holiday like Hanuka.

 

גיין

This is the verb for "to go." However it is often used to mean to "to walk" as well. Imagine saying "we go" but meaning that "we are going for a walk."

 

קריגן

This verb means 'to get' as in 'to recieve.'
