In this particular case, I'd use -ghach:

{qIHchuqpu'ghachmaj jaj}

Many cases won't be quite so simple, however; "the day on which Hurmuq gave the necklace to chulmoQ" makes it tricky to think of a noun phrase that wouldn't be terribly ambiguous.

Is there a canon precedent for a phrase like "The day on which xy
happened"? Like in "remember the day we first met". {maqIHbogh jaj}
sounds wrong.

The only thing that came to my mind was from the Drinking song, but I
think that one is not considered a best example, is it?

{jaj qeylIS molor mIgh Hoghchu'qu'}
"The day on which Khaless" killed evil Molor.
