A dreidel (Yiddish: ãøÖãì dreydl, Hebrew: ñáéáåïý Sevivon) is a four-sided top, played with during the Jewish holiday of Hanukkah. The dreidel is used for a gambling game similar to Teetotum. Each side of the dreidel bears a letter of the Hebrew alphabet: ð (Nun), â (Gimel), ä (Hei), ù (Shin), which together form the acronym for "ðñ âãåì äéä ùí" (Nes Gadol Haya Sham – "a great miracle happened there"). These letters also form a mnemonic for the rules of a gambling game played with a dreidel: Nun stands for the Yiddish word nite ("nothing"), Hei stands for halb ("half"), Gimel for gants ("all"), and Shin for shteln ("put"). In the state of Israel, the fourth side of most dreidels is inscribed with the letter ô (Pei), rendering the acronym, ðñ âãåì äéä ôä, Nes Gadol Haya Po—"A great miracle happened here" referring to the miracle occurring in the land of Israel. Some stores in Haredi neighbourhoods may sell the traditional ù dreidels.
