So! Thanks to my dear friend Michal, I got me my first dreidel.
I’ve wanted one for quite some time, and now, I’ve got one. 🙂 For all those who don’t know, a dreidel is a traditional Hanukkah top that’s used to play a game that is often played for delicious stakes known as gelt. It, of course, has Hebrew letters on it. Mine has the words that the letters spell out, too:
נס גדול היה שם
nes gadol haya sham
a great miracle happened there
“There”, of course, being Israel, the setting of the miracle of the Hannukah story. I haven’t really got it to spin the way I want it to yet. Hehe. But I will!
תודה, חברה! היה כיף מאוד!׳
