Tel Aviv feast sets Guinness world record as 2,226 people share a Sabbath meal at the Port along with VIPs from far and wide.

What does it take to create a Guinness world record-making Shabbat dinner? Technically, at least 1,000 participants. But the White City Shabbat folks in Tel Aviv attracted more than 2,200 to Hangar 11 at the Tel Aviv Port on June 13, 2014, with about an equal number on the waiting list.

Eight hundred bottles of wine, 80 bottles of vodka, 50 bottles of whiskey, 2,000 challah rolls, 1,800 pieces of chicken, 1,000 pieces of beef and 250 vegetarian plates were served that night. Watch here to find out what the organizers, the Guinness official and the VIP guests had to say about this feat.
