CHAM­PION KNEIDLS AND DREI­DELS

The Jewish Chronicle - - COMMENT -

GUIN­NESS World Records will be cel­e­brat­ing its 60th birth­day next year.

So there is still time for would-be Jewish world-beat­ers to make the ju­bilee edi­tion.

The largest cer­ti­fied matzah ball was made by Noah’s Ark Orig­i­nal Deli in New York in 2009, which weighed in at 267lbs. The mon­ster kneidl re­quired 1,000 eggs, 80lb of mar­garine, 20lbs of chicken base and 200lb of matzah meal. Oth­ers have since claimed big­ger balls but the Noah’s Ark record still stands, ac­cord­ing to Guin­ness.

The largest Shab­bat din­ner was en­joyed ear­lier this summer by 2,226 peo­ple in Tel Aviv — a record that maybe Chief Rabbi Mirvis should chal­lenge at his Shab­bat UK in au­tumn.

The of­fi­cial record for mass drei­del spin­ning was set by United Sy­n­a­gogue Youth in Philadel­phia in 2011 when 734 drei­dels were si­mul­ta­ne­ously turned for at least 10 sec­onds.
