Remember what we were telling you about? Dreidels? Well here's how to play, you start off by getting a dreidel. We suggest that you get the smaller wooden or plastic ones, the big wooden or large hollow plastic ones don't hardly spin at all. You need something to "gamble" with, some people use pennies but the games' more interesting with something tasty like candy. The "pot" is the middle of the table where the stuff you put in goes.
This letter is called a Shin it makes the "sh" sound in Hebrew, when you get this you give half of what you have into the pot (There is another letter that looks like this, called a sin, it makes the "s" sound it has a dot on the left side a shin is supposed to have a dot on the right)
This letter is called Nun it makes the "n" sound in Hebrew, when the dreidel lands on this letter you do nothing.
This letter is called a Gimmel it makes the "G" (like goldfish) sound in Hebrew, when you get this letter you take all that is in the pot
The red letter is called a Hey it makes the "H" sound in Hebrew, when the dreidel lands on this letter you take half of the pot.
Each time a turn is done, everyone puts one in the pot then it is the next persons turn.
There is another way to play dreidel, perhaps we'll post that another day.
'Till then, Happy Hanukkah!
