Be’chol Dreidel Silver

$89.00

This dreidel is different– it is special. It encompasses a lot of what makes me excited to be an artist– to innovate, to inspire. Normal dreidels in America have the Hebrew letters : ? (Nun), ? (Gimmel), ? (Hay) and ? (Shin), which stand for the Hebrew phrase “Nes Gadol Haya Sham,” which means “A great miracle happened there [in Israel].” In Israel the Hebrew letters were changed to: ? (Nun), ? (Gimmel), ? (Hay) and ? (Pey), which stand for “Nes Gadol Haya Po,” which means “A great miracle happened here.”

My “Be’chol Dreidel” replaces the ? (shin) or the ? (Pey) with a ?? (Bet) which stands for “Nes Gadol Haya Be’chol” (Ha Olam). This means A Great Miracle Happened All Over the World.” This makes the statement that God is everywhere and for everyone and I believe our festivals– even Hanukkah– should reflect that vision at all times.

To play this game here are the rules:

? (Nun): Yiddish for “nichts,” or “nothing.” If the dreidel lands with a nun pointing down the spinner does nothing.

? (Gimmel): Yiddish for “ganz,” or “everything.” If the dreidel lands with the gimmel pointing down the spinner gets everything in the pot.

? (Hay): Yiddish for “halb,” or “half.” If the dreidel lands with a hey pointing down the spinner gets half of the pot.

?? (Bet): Hebrew for “be’chol ha olam” or “in all the world.” If the dreidel lands with a bet pointing down ALL of the players add a game piece to the pot.
