Here we are on the fifth night. I've decided to do a little bit with the dreidel, or sevivon in Hebrew. For those unfamiliar, the dreidal is a four-sided top with four symbols printed or carved on each side in Hebrew.

After lighting the menorah, some families will play the dreidel game. That's not much different in my family where we'll have board or card games possibly played during family gatherings.

To expand on Johnny's comment. The Greeks had outlawed the studying of the Torah. So students would gather in caves to learn with a look out keeping watch. When the soldiers came around, they'd hide all of their scrolls and pull out the dreidel, pretending to be gambling.

Three more nights to go!
