What is a dreidel?

The dreidel, known in Hebrew as a “sevivon” is a four-sided spinning top with Hebrew letters on the sides spelling the initial letters of “nes gadol hayah sham” – a great miracle happened there. In Israel, the last letter has been changed so that it reads, “a great miracle happened here.”

Reason for Dreidel

The source of the Chanukah dreidel is the story of the courageous children who continued to study Torah defying the wicked Greek soldiers. Whenever a soldier entered, they would quickly take out spinning tops and pretend they were harmlessly playing.

The Dreidel Today

Today, the dreidel fills a dual purpose. It is a harmless game that children and adults play together using raisins, candies or chocolate coins. The dreidel is also a magnificent item of Judaica proudly displayed year-round. Many people have started a dreidel collection and discovered the beauty of design and color that lies within the small spinning top.
