A Biiig miracle!

…Or at least I thought so! Please, call me Christy.

How is it that I didn’t know that in Israel there is a Pay instead of a Shin on the dreidel?

For those equally unenlightened…

B’ America:

Nun – Nes
Gimmel – Gadol
Hay – Haya
Shin – Shomm

“Nes Gadol Haya Shomm” (“a great miracle happened there”)

B’Yisrael:

Nun – Nes
Gimmel – Gadol
Hay – Haya
Pay – Poh

“Nes Gadol Haya Po” (“a great miracle happened here”)
