Dreidel, Dreidel, Dreidel

During the Hanukkah eight-day celebration, one of the traditional activities centers around playing the Dreidel game. To accompany it the Dreidel Song is sung. Many think it is a folk song but in reality it was composed by an American, Samuel E. Goldfarb.

Goldfarb's son Myron Gordon, a Kendal resident, has gone a long way in popularizing it and having it recorded on a CD. The entire story of how that came to pass appears on the website of JTA.
