Dreidels

"A Great Miracle Happened There!"

A favorite Hanukkah pastime enjoyed by families for many years, a dreidel is a spinning top adorned with four Hebrew letters that celebrate the miraculous victory of the Maccabees over the ancient Greek army and the rededication of the Holy Temple in Jerusalem. In the Land of Israel, the four letters are nun, gimel, hey and peh as symbols for the phrase "Nes Gadol Haya Po" (A Great Miracle Happened Here) while dreidels in the Diaspora feature the letters nun, gimel, hey and shin for "Nes Gadol Haya Sham" (A Great Miracle Happened There). One of the most popular uses of the dreidel is to play a game where the spinner wins or loses depending on which letter the dreidel lands on.

At Judaica Webstore, we carry a wide variety of dreidels, including traditional wooden dreidels, ornamental dreidels decorated with beautiful designs by world-renowned Israeli artist Yair Emanuel, sterling silver dreidels that are masterfully handcrafted in the very hills that were once inhabited by the Maccabees, chic dreidels with stylish modern designs and much, much more.
