"Dreidel, Dreidel, Dreidel"

Every child in the Diaspora knows the difference. But when they get older, I suppose they forget.

Every child knows the difference.

 

In the Diaspora, the Hebrew letters on a dreidel are Nun, Gimmel, Hey, Shin. “A great miracle happened THERE.”

In Israel, the letters on the dreidels are Nun, Gimmel, Hey, Peh. “A great miracle happened HERE.”

That says it all.

Happy Hanukah!
