The Most Interesting Jew in the World (video)

Jay Shultz is trying to set a new Guiness record - for the largest Shabbat dinner...

from Israel21c:
White City Shabbat — a group that helps connect people with Shabbat hospitality in Tel Aviv – has decided to up the ante and set a new Guinness World Record for the World’s Largest Shabbat Dinner. The non-profit organization needs over 1,000 Israelis and new immigrants to attend the dinner set to take place on June 13, 2014.“While White City Shabbat is going to be the first organization to attempt this record, our hope is that in years to come communities around the world will come together to try and surpass the standard we set this year. What a beautifully holy race it would be to have Jewish organizations trying to outdo each other. It will be a real win/win for Am Yisrael,” said Jay Shultz, founder of the group.The dinner will be free of charge for attendees but the group recently launched an Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign to cover the costs. The campaign mimics the theme of The Most Interesting Man In The World Dos Equis commercials but instead features Shultz, in the character of the Most Interesting Jew In The World.“With more and more young Jews from around the world choosing to make Tel Aviv their home, celebrating the first ever World’s Largest Shabbat Dinner with the Guinness Book will further establish Tel Aviv as one of the most important cities for the Jewish People today,” said Eytan White, co-director of White City Shabbat.WCS says the guest list will include notable Israelis such as Tel Aviv Mayor Ron Huldai, former Chief Rabbi of Israel Israel Meir Lau, and Deputy Minister of Religious Affairs, Rabbi Eli Ben-Dahan.

  1. The Chabad house at Binghamton University has been making a 1000 person Shabbat for years. Recently they've topped 1000 and had to change the name from Shabbat 1000 to Shabbat 1500 http://www.chabadofbinghamton.com/templates/binghamton/article_cdo/aid/843084/jewish/Shabbat-1500.htm

    I don't know where this record came from... not the best research.
