JNF and Grandma Moses have broken the Guinness World Record for the longest braided loaf of bread, in honour of the Shabbat Project.

A lot of challah

The current world record is 6.09 m and was achieved by Project Inspire in Brooklyn, New York, USA, on 22 October 2015.

Yesterday at Sydney’s Maroubra Synagogue the record was smashed with the successful baking of a 10.08m challah.

A JNF spokesperson said: “It took 12 hours, using 70 kilos of dough.

Proud bakers

The giant challah was baked using volunteers from students from Emanuel, Moriah, Masada, Kesser Torah and Mount Sinai.

The spokesperson added: “This project is a way to celebrate Jewish traditions, community and Shabbat.”

The challah was baked by a pizza oven with the back and front open. 14 pairs of hands were needed to guide the monster challah through the oven. The spokesperson added: “We made a human conveyor belt.”
