Belly Dancer Dreidel
The pomegranate fruits and leaves hanging from the dreidel are lifted up like a belly dancer’s skirt lifts while she dances. The design reflects the biblical description of the hem of the high priest’s robe, which was trimmed with bells and pomegranates. Each word of the phrase in Hebrew, nes gadol haya po (a great miracle happened here) is cut into each of the four sides of the dreidel.
