One of the best known symbols of Chanukah is the Dreidel.
A dreidel is a four sided top with a Hebrew letter on each side.
The four letters are: SHIN, HEY, GIMEL, NUN
These letters mean "A Great Miracle Happened There."
In Israel the dreidel is a bit different in that their letters mean "A Miracle Happened HERE!"
Dreidel is also a popular game played during the Holiday.
Players use pennies, nuts, raisins, or chocolate coins (gelt) as tokens or chips.
The player spins the dreidel. When the dreidel stops, the letter that is facing up decides the outcome.
NUN - nothing happens - next player spins the dreidel
GIMEL - player takes all tokens in the pot
HEY - player takes half of the pot
SHIN - player must put one token into the pot
