The Dr. Dreidel


The Dr. Dreidel is made by Painter, Illustrator, Writer, Jeweler, and Up-to-No-Gooder, Hannah Rothstein. Each Dr. Dre’s face has been carefully chosen to correlate with the ‘aftermath’ of the dreidel’s spin. Check out the actions below. The packaging even has a modified Beats by Dre logo that displays a “d” instead of the “b”. The Dreidel is created for its sheer hilarity and the love of puns. This laser-etched, wooden dreidel brings together two unlikely cohorts: the Jewish holiday of Hanukkah and Hip Hop.

ג  Gimmel, ‘take all,’ is a dreidel player’s dream. It gets a thumbs up from a happy Dr. Dre.
ה Hay, ‘take half,’ is no reason to party, but isn’t too shabby, hence the mildly smug portrait or Dr. Dre.
נ Nun, ‘nothing happens,’ is a boring outcome. A dead-pan Dr. Dre affirms this.
ש Shin, ‘put one in,’ is pretty depressing; the dreidel player loses an M & M or other such playing piece. But shins are seldom a chronic problem in dreidel. Dr. Dre’s definitely overreacting.
