As fondly remembered from childhood - Ikh Bin A Kleyner Dreydl (I am a little dreidel) is the Yiddish name for the popular “Dreidel Song”. While the simple game of Dreidel is not actually a mitzvah of Hanukkah (the only traditional mitzvot are lighting candles and saying the full Hallel), I have still chosen to show it visually in “floating” spiritual reverence. The game was developed by Jews who illegally studied the Torah in seclusion as they hid in caves from the Seleucids under Antiochus IV. At the first sign of Seleucids approaching, their Torah scrolls would be concealed and replaced by dreidels. Besides this historical significance, spinning a dreidel is a direct link to our heritage – what a marvellous thing to play the same games as previous generations! Although many of today’s dreidels replace the Shin with the letter Peh (to complete the Hebrew acronym for “a great miracle happened there”, the Shin has always been my favourite letter – a visual “crown” with multiple great meanings and reminders of how to live life.
