Dreidel by Gidon Chai

This beautiful 3-inch high dreidel, made of gold, brass and sterling silver is part of a limited edition created by Israeli artist Gidon Chai. It features sculpted figurines of the Maccabees. This dreidel has an amazing history, as it has done something that very few people have ever done - traveled into space. Astronaut Jeffrey A. Hoffman, aboard the Space Shuttle Endeavour, carried it with him on a space mission back in December 1993.
