Dreidel - Forest Glen
Our unique dreidel handcrafted using fused parts of recycled glass bottles. Each side is finished with a letter of the Hebrew alphabet which together form an acronym for Nes Gadol Hayah Sham meaning "a great miracle happened there".
The custom of playing dreidel on Hanukkah is based on a legend that, during the time of the Maccabees, when Jewish children were forbidden from studying Torah, they would defy the decree and study anyway. When a Greek official would come close they would put away their books and take out spinning tops, claiming they were just playing games.
All of our products are hand painted with glass enamel paints. Our unique designs are permanently fused to the glass using kiln-heating. All products are handmade at our studio in Nashua, New Hampshire USA.
Seen here in Forest Glen, this dreidel features rich blends of amber, white and black.
