What is the Sevivon
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
