Shower thought: the letters on the dreidel are one of the very few few circumstances where Israel practices a less authentic tradition.

In israel the letters on the dreidel are נ ג ה פ – נס גדול היה פה – a great miracle happened here. Outside of israel the letters are נ ג ה ש – נס גדול היה שם – a great miracle happened there. The dreidel originated in Europe with the letter ש. Changing to a פ in israel is a recent invention – around a hundred years old. It is the only difference in practice between inside and outside of israel where outside of israel a more authentic tradition is practiced. Can you think of any others?
