Sandra — Thanks for taking the time to comment. To answer your points: 1. You hit on the essence of the matter— I never thought to ask. 2. Will fix. 3. This story is really old, from a pre-Web/pre-Wex era in which we had to rely on legwork — letters, phone calls, and library research (I had to drive from Miami Beach to Boca Raton to find the Yiddish dictionary). And so you know, all these years later, I’m still poking around in unexamined corners of Jewish culture. http://www.jta.org/2016/12/22/life-religion/the-hidden-history-of-i-have-a-little-dreidel
