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.
A falafel ball weighing nearly 52.8 pounds created at a Jewish food festival in California has been certified as the world's largest. The falafel ball was certified on Sunday for submission to the Guinness Book of World Records at the Santa Clarita Valley Jewish Food and Cultural Festival, the Los Angeles Daily News reported. The ball, made of ground chickpeas and fava beans, also measured 12.5 inches high.
The Santa Clarita Valley could become home to the world’s largest falafel ball on May 15, when local chef Dawn Walker tries to craft and cook a deep-fried chickpea patty that will outweigh the 24-pound falafel ball that set the record a year ago in New York. Part of the third annual Santa Clarita Valley Jewish Food and Cultural Festival, Walker’s attempt will be documented for the Guinness Book of World Records. If a test run held two weeks before the event is any indication, the ball could end up weighing as much as 50 pounds.
