N.J. Shul Claims New Menorah-Lighting Guinness Record

JewishPress Logo

A New Jersey synagogue said that it set a new Guinness World Record by lighting 834 menorahs on 90 tables in an airport hangar.

The event planned by the Jewish Center of Princeton, N.J., took place on Tuesday night, the fourth night of Chanukah, at the Princeton Airport. It was organized by the Conservative synagogue’s director of programming, Neil Wise, according to The Daily Princetonian student newspaper.

The previous record was set last year by the Merrick Jewish Centre in New York, with 782 lit menorahs.

Participants in Tuesday’s event made videotape testimonies of their names, hometowns and registration numbers for official documentation for the Guinness committee, according to the newspaper.

Princeton University students and alumni, as well as members of the general community, participated in the record-setting attempt.
