Record-Setting Shabbat Table?
The central Israeli city of Bnei Brak set what is believed to be the world’s longest Shabbat table earlier this summer.
At 197 feet long, the table — set with china plates, crystal goblets and silver candlesticks, as well as traditional Shabbat foods — comfortably seats more than 300, Ynet reported.
The municipality, in conjunction with the Bnei Brak-based Coca-Cola Company and the haredi Orthodox advertising agency Meimad, set the table in an attempt to make it into Guinness World Records.
The table is also aiming for the world record for the best-set table.
