Dreidels are a classic Hanukkah item and part of a traditional holiday game that's been beloved by Jewish children and adults alike for generations. Hanukkah dreidels are often adorned with four Hebrew letters: NunGimmelHey, and Shin, which form an acronym for the phrase, Nes Gadol Haya Sham – meaning, “a great miracle happened there” – referring to the miracle of Hanukkah that happened in Jerusalem in the Land of Israel. Many Israeli-made dreidels have a Peh instead of a Shin, to stand for Nes Gadol Haya Po – “a great miracle happened here.” Wherever you live, either version will remind you of Jerusalem and the miracle of the Festival of Lights!

We have dozens of fun dreidels from Israeli designers for every budget and style, both traditional and modern, from simple and classic to the most elaborate and artistic. These artistic dreidels are not just for kids' play, but also make for beautiful, eye-catching centerpieces for your holiday table and wonderful, traditional Hanukkah gifts.

So bring Hanukkah to life on December 25, 2024 and get the whole family excited with these festive dreidels from the Land of Israel!
