Additional attempts by secular museums to undermine the Mesorah
This photo was taken at the Marble Museum in Devon. Obviously, the game the placard describes is a complete robbery of our holy, masoretic game of dreidel. That old story about the Jews who concealed their Torah-learning during the Greek persecutions by playing driedal, by the way, is 100 percent true. Only our ancestors used an 9-sided top, not a four-sided top, and instead of having one letter each for the phrase "[A] Great Miracle Happened There," the letters on the ancient Judean dreidal were an acronym for : [A] Great Miracle [is] Going [to] Happen Here Pretty Soon, We Think." Really!
