Description

Inspired by a spinning top from the esteemed Bezalel School of Arts and Crafts between 1910-1920, this dreidel pays homage to beloved Hanukkah traditions. Rooted in European games of chance, the dreidel's spinning is a cherished Hanukkah activity for children. Each of its four sides bears a letter, collectively forming the acronym for "A great miracle occurred here," referencing the Maccabees' triumphant stand against Antiochus's forces and the subsequent Temple reconsecration in Jerusalem. Notably, this Bezalel-crafted dreidel, intended for the Diaspora, showcases the letter shin (representing "there") instead of peh (meaning "here").
