Question: I have a question.
When the Jews were playing dreidel, the sides of the dreidel are labeled nun gimmel hay and shin, nes gadol haya sham, a great miracle happened here.
the Jews played dreidel to distract the soldiers to think they were playing, not learning.
why were they labeled "a great miracle happened here" before the miracle happened? was it labeled something else before? Reply

That is a really good question. Rabbi Zechariah Wallerstein has a whole shiur on this and he brings a medrash that they had the same letters because they also stand for GOSHENAH (gimmel,shin,nun,heh) to remind themselves of Goshen, the land the Jews stayed in when they were in Egypt. This would remind them to stay true to Hashem just as then. Reply
