Marmol Radziner Gorgeous Classic Dreidel 

Although not a shop, I must admit, I truly love this modern take on a traditional Hanukkah game and it's absolutely exquisite. This unique dreidel is crafted in solid walnut with graphic cutouts of Hebrew letters and includes a brass stand for display. Celebrate the holiday with a festive gift for children and adults of all ages.

The Jewish Museum

When ever I am in New York City, I make it a habit to stop off at The Jewish Museum Shop. But, I live on the west coast, so I am thrilled to see that they offer a huge selection of Jewish ceremonial objects and products from contemporary to traditional Jewish art and culture online. All proceeds from sales of merchandise on their website or stores are used to support the mission and programming of the Jewish Museum.
