Binghamton U. students say they’re the top dreidel spinners

(JTA) — Jewish students at Binghamton University in upstate New York say they have documentation to prove that they broke the Guinness World Record for dreidel spinning.

Some 749 dreidels were spun simultaneously, for at least 10 seconds, Monday night at the Chabad Center for Jewish Student Live at Binghamton University, according to the center. Organizers of the dreidel spin say they have photos, video and other necessary documentation, which will be submitted for review to the Guinness committee.

The current Guinness record is 734 dreidels, and was set last year by the United Synagogue Youth in Philadelphia.
