For several weeks now, the organizers of White City Shabbat have been urging people living or staying in Tel Aviv to join in the effort to bring about the largest-ever Shabbat dinner, with the aim of getting it into Guinness World Records.

The date, June 13, is fast approaching. The venue is Hangar 11 in the Tel Aviv Port, and the purpose is to provide a great show of Jewish unity at a Shabbat meal that will be presided over by Tel Aviv Chief Rabbi Yisrael Meir Lau. The repast will be mehadrin kosher and will meet the principles of Shabbat-observant participants. The event will begin at 6:30 p.m. with a Kabbalat Shabbat concert, followed by candlelighting and a short address by the captivating Rabbi Lau.
