Almost 800 people took a spin — and succeeded — at breaking the world record for simultaneous dreidel spinning on Sunday, which included political candidate and MK Tzipi Livni (Hatnua) as one of the participants.

With Guinness World Record officials monitoring the 200-meter-long table, 754 adults and children successfully spun dreidels for 10 seconds in a row at the city's Sarona shopping compound. The previous record was for 377 dreidels.

"We came here today to break a positive record," Livni said. "It's upon all of us to continue to create a better, more optimistic reality for our children and for all of Israel."

All of the dreidels were provided by Draydel House, a store known for creating luxury ceramic dreidels and themselves record holders for one of the largest dreidels in the world.
