The Dreidel (Yiddish) or Sevivon (Hebrew), is a four-sided spinning top, with a Hebrew letter inscribed on each side. Assembling the letters you can have the sentence "A great miracle happened there" as well as "A great miracle happened here", referring to the miracle of the oil that took place in the Beit Hamikdash.The small spinning top

Some say the Dreidel game is played to commemorate a game devised by the Jews to camouflage the studying of the Torah, which was outlawed by the Greeks and the Romans.
Delta made two different models for celebrating this tradition:
Dreidel is made in hand turmed special resin. Pink, white and blue are pearly marmorized colors; black is glossy plain color.
The central ring is in sterling silver, decored on relief with Delta's classic designs.
Note: there are two models of Dreidel. One is only cartridge filled, the other one (this one we sell) features both cartridges and converter.
