Long before the fidget spinner became the world's favorite pastime, Jewish children played with spinning tops on the holiday of Chanuka.

Article abstract: In the Torah portion Miketz, the word "חכם" (wise) appears for the first time in Scripture - used by Pharaoh to describe Joseph. In the article, we examine the depth of the word, specifically its uniqueness versus words like "בינה" "דעה", "השכל".
