This is really lovely! Thank you to Staṡa Morgan-Appel for posting this on Facebook.
A few years ago, apparently a lovely picture book was released proposing a Ninth Night of Hanukkah in honor of the helpers (link goes to an NPR page). I admit I got a little teary at the author Erica Perl talking about the inspiration for the story.
If you’re interested in the book, you can find it at Bookshop.
