A Great Miracle Happened There
Explanation:
The first letters of these four words: NGHS are the letters appearing on the sides of the dreidle/sevivon - spinning top that is used on Hannuka. This context of the phrase is the issue of the great miracle that occured in the Temple at the time of Hannuka. In Israel, the words are Nes Gadol Haya Po (NGHP), or a great miracle happened here
