TEL AVIV, Israel, Dec. 22 (UPI) -- Nearly 800 people gathered in Israel to break the Guinness World Record for most dreidels spinning simultaneously.

The group, which included Member of Knesset Tzipi Livni, the country's former justice minister, attempted to spin about 1,000 of the traditional Hanukkah tops Sunday at Tel Aviv's Sarona shopping center Sunday and a total 754 dreidels kept spinning for the required 10 seconds.
