Chanukah Menorah

SAVE 50% on a 5 eBook Collection

Students of Kabbalah, who thrive on finding and interpreting symbols, read the dreidel as a comment on the struggle between the rational, physical, and spiritual forces within everyone. Which one will win out?

Nun () - nefesh, soul
Gimmel () - guf, body
Hey () - sechel, mind
Shin () - hakol, all

There are soaring moments when the soul dominates, when corporeal material desires carry more weight, when cool calculating logic rules, but nothing compares to the harmony of all aspects working together.

More about the Dreidel.
