I could tell this was going to be a hard one as soon as I looked at it and it was for me anyway!

It's nice to see a puzzle with the Hanukkah Dreidel on it.This was a great puzzle to play. This old Jewish game is where we get the old spinning top game from.

I so enjoyed doing the dreidel puzzle and thank you all for your wisdom and teaching - may the world unite and have peace and happiness! After the terrible incident here in Sydney, it has united us all and we pray that there are no more acts of terrorism!

For use with the "gold" coins we did earlier - yes, Lydia? (Have not read the description yet.)

God bless you all today and every day.

Yes, you can use gelt, but you can also use anything else, like pennies, nuts, buttons....! So sad Chanukah only has 3 more more nights! Last night we had 12 for a wonderful Chanukah dinner and party!

Okay our Jewish puzzlers--fill me in. I know it's a dradel (sp? ) and you spin it but what does each letter mean? I'm going to call them "G",
"r", "L" and "C". What are their Hebrew names and what do they stand for? And how do you play?
Thank you.
Hope you are having a wonderful Hannukah "week".
Wishing all a most blessed Sunday for those who are Christian, and just a great weekend to anyone I left oout.

Well, you knew I would have to answer! The Hebrew letters are a Nun, Gimmel, Hay and Shin. They stand for the Hebrew words Nes gadol haya sham, which means A great miracle happened there- referring to the victory of the Maccabees over the Syrians who were trying to persecute the Jews. The Syrians destroyed the holy Temple in Jerusalem (the first time) and when the Jews found the Temple in ruins and the eternal flame was out, they could only find 1 small cruse of purified oil to light it. It would take several days to make more purified oil, but they lit it anyway and it miraculously lasted for 8 nights and days until more oil could be had- thus, Chanukah lasts for 8 nights! That's one story anyway! The other is that it lasts for 8 nights to make up for the holiday of Sukkot, which the warriors had missed while fighting. In Israel, the letters are a little different and mean a great miracle happened HERE- nes gadol haya po. I may have already written about how driedel was originally a betting game used to put off the greeks and syrians, etc. who forbade the study of Torah. The Jews, of course, still studied in hidden places and when they heard someone coming, would hide the Torah and get out the dreidels! You play it by spinning the top andwhatever letter it lands on, you either put a coin into the pot, win the whole pot, do nothing or lose all your coins.
