Did you know? Facts and thoughts about Jewish tradition:
Dreidels are four-sided spin tops. Dreidel Game has been around for a few hundred years and is played during the 8 days of Hanukkah. The word Dreidel comes from Yiddish word "dreyen" - "to turn". In Israel dreidels are called "sevivon", Hebrew word comes from the root "sbb" - "to turn".
Each side of the dreidel bares a letter of the Hebrew alphabet: Nun, Gimel, Hei, and Shin, which together form the acronym for "Nes Gadol Haya Sham" – "a great miracle happened there". In Israel you can also find dreidels which have a letter "pei" instead of "shin" making that phraise "Nes Gadol Haya Po" - "a great miracle happened here". You can buy both kinds of dreidels for sale on our website!
The four letters on the dreidel are also known to be symbolic. According to some Jewish commentators they stand for countries of four exiles to which the nation of Israel was subject - Babylonia, Persia, Greece, and Rome. The significance of spinning the dreidel is to see the is a microcosmic representation of the four kingdoms, Babylon, Persia, Greece and Rome spinning around the center. Every empire thinks that it will last forever, but The Hand that spins the dreidel of history only for predetermined time and then, each Empire, despite its vainglorious boasting, falters on its axis and finally crashes.
