We would love to extend an invitation to our users to send us some of the their positive ideas for any future updates. Some of our best functionalities and features have come from user-base. You can fill out the contact form.

The Chanukah Guide is part of the same Jewish App Suite as the Mezuzah App, Chitas App and Moshiach App.

How to play Dreidel?

A dreidel is a spinning top with four sides. Each player takes his turn by spinning the top. The Dreidel determines the outcome of the player’s move. A player that spins a “Nun” (gets nothing), “Gimmel” (wins everything), “Hay” (receives half), “Shin” (puts into the pot). Players can play for money, candy, tokens etc…

The Dreidel represents the game that the Jews pretended to play in order to disguise the fact that they were learning Torah, an act outlawed by the Greeks. Chanukah celebrates the Jewish victory against the Greek oppression.

How to use the Dreidel on the Chanukah app?

Hanukkah Apps

The app has a dreidel that can take the place of a real (wooden or metal) dreidel. You can activate the dreidel by putting both fingers on the app and spinning (in either direction). The animated dreidel will spin and then randomly generate one of the faces of the dreidel. We coded the dreidel to generate the answers without any order or pattern.

Feel free to give it a whirl!
