Handmade in Israel, this modern Hanukkah dreidel from Erga's Etsy shop has a form that strays slightly from convention. Rather than adhering to the blocky form of traditional dreidels, this design adopts a flattened shape. Despite these subtle changes in form, the overall shape of the dreidel top remains square so that it is still functional for play.

The sterling silver dreidels are made to order with characters that read either: "Nes gadol haya po," (A great miracle happened here) or "Nes gadol haya sham" (A great miracle happened there.) The precious materials used to create this shapely modern dreidel would make it a fantastic option for a gift or keepsake, especially since Erga packages its dreidels in gift boxes.
