The Dreidal shop in Old City Caesarea

Since Hanukkah is nearly here I think this is a great time to post about Eran Grebler’s dreidal house in the Old City of Caesarea. The dreidal house is a shop and showroom displaying Eran’s ceramic dreidal and other works. Saying that I should mention that many of the dreidals in the shop are more tops than dreidals. Dradals have the נ,ג,ה,פ.ש Hebrew letters on then and many of the items in the shop do not. They are more enchanting spinning objects then dreidals, but there are also many actual dreidals there. The crativity of the dreidals in this shop are amazing. Actually most of the dreidals would be better describes as tops than are more dreidals, but all are special and inspiring. While many of the items in this shop do resemble tops and dreydals some actually take some time to figure out what you are looking at. I call there sci-fi dreidals as they look like models of the solar system. He also makes ceramic Hanukkah Menorahs (Hanukiot), chess sets, Seder plates and Mezzuzas. Anyway, Hanukkah is a great time to visit Caesarea, and if you do, you should defiantly drop in and visit this shop. And I cannot think of a better Hanukkah present.

    Wow these are amazing! I will try to find that shop on my next Tiyul to that area. This could be my excuse to go there. Not that one is needed.

    We are planning to visit Israel in the spring and Cesarea is on our itinerary. I will make a note to visit this shop. It looks like a great place for getting souvenirs.
