RIVER EDGE -

Some New Jersey students are kicking off Hanukkah by breaking a world record.

They just broke the record for the most people spinning dreidels simultaneously.

The Newark-based Manischewitz Company partnered with students at the Rosenbaum Yeshiva of North Jersey to make it happen.

A whopping 1,369 dreidels spun at the same time, breaking the previous record of 965. 

Saturday is the first day of Hanukkah.
