Hannukah Is Also Time For Dredels: Mrs. Jack Wigod shows her daughter, Rebecca, how to play a game connected with Hannukah. The Dredel, a spinning top-like toy, is spun to stop on letters on a card. The letters represent words meaning " A great miracle happened then." The miracle referred to is the double miracle which Hannukah commemorates the driving of the Selucids from Jerusalem and the cleansing of the temple with one small flask of lamp oil which burned for the entire eight days of the first Hannukah.
