Wooden Dreidel

This small wooden four-sided spinning top is known as a dreidel.  Each side of the dreidel bears a letter of the Hebrew alphabet:  Gimmel, Hey, Nun, and Shin.  which together form the acronym for "נס גדול היה שם‎" (Nes Gadol Hayah Sham – "a great miracle happened there"). These letters were originally a mnemonic for the rules of a game played with a dreidel: Nun stands for the Yiddish word nisht ("nothing"), Hey stands for halb ("half"), Gimel for gants ("all"), and Shin for shtel ayn ("put in").

In Israel, the fourth side of most dreidels is inscribed with the letter פ‎ (Pei) instead, rendering the acronym, נס גדול היה פה‎, Nes Gadol Hayah Poh—"A great miracle happened here", referring to the miracle occurring in the Land of Israel.

Use this dreidel for the dreidel game during Chanukah!
