How was a bottle transformed into a dreidel?
We have cut, filed, fused, and hand-painted in our signature color scheme this unique and one-of-a-kind dreidel. The four Hebrew letters decorating the circumference are an acronym for "Nes Gadol Hayah Sham," meaning "a great miracle happened there."

How has a spinning top become part of Hanukkah tradition? Here is the story: More than 2000 years ago, when Israel was under foreign domination (the Greeks, this time), children were forbidden to study Jewish religious texts. The resistance (AKA the Maccabees), on the other hand, encouraged them to study the Torah in secret. When a Greek official came close, the children hid their books and took out their dreidels, pretending they were playing. Eventually, the Maccabees kicked out the Greeks and restored the Temple in Jerusalem, so the dreidel became a fixture of the holiday celebrating that event.
All our products are hand-painted with glass enamel to create one-of-a-kind designs. The enamel is permanently fused to the glass in a kiln. All products are handcrafted at our studio in Litchfield, New Hampshire, USA.
Seen here in our Lavender Field color scheme, this glass dreidel features rich blends of amethyst purple, peridot green and ivory white.
