Ruthless Bubbes in Dreidel Smackdown


Residents from four Jewish senior homes or centers compete today in a dreidel-spinning contest. “A nice gift basket” is the prize, the Daily News reports in bubbe-speak, and the competition is fierce. “I’ll have to do a lot of practicing if I want to win,” Irene Meyerowitz of Sheepshead Bay told the paper. “This is a very tricky thing. Is this dreidel defective?” Irene! Do you guilt your kids the way you guilt your dreidel? [NYDN]
