Bakery breaks world record for longest challah Print

A kosher bakery in Sydney, Australia, has broken the Guinness World Record for the longest challah bread.

Grandma Moses Bakery, in partnership with the Jewish National Fund chapter in New South Wales, broke the record on 14 November, according to a Facebook post from the group. The record-setting challah clocked in at more than 32 feet long, and required over 150 pounds of dough and ten hours to bake. The event was organised by the international Shabbat Project, which organises programmes including challah bakes in more than 1,600 cities and 105 countries worldwide.

The previous record, set in Brooklyn in 2015, was a 20foot challah.
