The Hebrew word for spinning top – sevivon (from saviv = around) – was coined by the son of Eliezer Ben-Yehuda, who led the revival of modern Hebrew in the early 20th century. Previously, Hanukkah spinning tops were given many names in literature and folklore. In Yiddish, for example, the spinning top is called dreydl (meaning “to turn”) or verfel (“dice”). The letters on the four sides of the top relate to a spinning game played on Hanukkah; together, they form an acronym for the Hebrew phrase “a great miracle happened there” (alluding to the miracle of the Maccabees’ victory over Antiochus’s army and the reconsecration of the Temple in Jerusalem). In the land of Israel, the acronym is slightly different to form the phrase “a great miracle happened here.”
