A Jew is adding gambling for money to a children's game? I'm shocked. I have to lie down.

Oh, yeah. I bet that would be fun.

Player 1: "I raise five dollars."
Player 2: "Four dollars? Why do you go and raise me three dollars?"

The game always had gambling in it. It's a gambling game.

When my older daughter was in second grade I was invited to her class to talk about Hannukah. Of course I brought a dreydl and was asked to explain the game. After explaining the rules I said "Now this is a gambling game, so when you spin you have to say something like 'papa needs a new pair of shoes.'" I looked up and saw the horrified expression on the teacher's face as she made emphatic "don't go there" gestures--apparently teaching gambling is frowned up in public schools. Nevertheless, I soon had a classroom full of eight-year-olds piping "C'mon shin, c'mon shin--papa needs a new pair of shoes!"

The whole point of dreidel has been to gamble. It's not usually actual money. Gelt, M&Ms, or other candies are quite common. My family also used to do a candle race. The person who picks the last candle to go out gets a quarter or two. Mainly it was a way to get me and my siblings to stare at candles for a couple of hours.

We always "gambled" for chocolate coins, which was mentioned in the article..

As did we. We always ended up splitting the chocolate, anyway.

Some friends of mine have a yearly strip-dreidel party. I'm not Jewish so I don't remember the letters and what they traditionally did, but the rules were basically:

1) Take off a piece of clothing
2) Do nothing
3) Take a piece of clothing off someone else
4) Put a piece of clothing back on (doesn't have to be yours)

When we got tired of that, there's always Strip Apples-to-Apples -- although it took about 5 hours for a group of about 15 to get naked that way.

FTFA: "One of the leaders of this Dreidel renaissance is Jennie Rivlin Roberts, 38, an industrial psychologist turned entrepreneur from Atlanta, Ga."

I would have suspected maybe a psycho industrialist...

I've seen the Spinagogue firsthand (a friend is one of the designers). It's not flimsy at all, and the board folds out to make a Star of David, you put your gelt in one of the triangles. It was pretty impressive-I hope they're successful.

Can't have gabling in the classroom. That might lead to things like probability, statistics, math, and economics. Perhaps even psychology! We can't have eight-year-olds excited about learning, even if they are gentiles.
