  Most sandwiches made in one hour: Jewish Community sets world record

ROSLYN, NY, USA -- 100 children and parent UJA-Federation volunteers came together from the Jewish community to whip together 1,660 sandwiches in one hour to be donated to feed the hungry, setting the world record for the Most sandwiches made in one hour, according to the World Record Academy: www.worldrecordacademy.com/.

  The Guinness world record for the longest line of sandwiches is 2,667.13 m (8,750 ft 4.91 in) and was achieved by Kraft Foods Middle East and Africa FZE (United Arab Emirates) in Dubai Outlet Mall, Dubai (UAE).

  Guinness World Records also recognized the world record for the most expensive sandwich commercially available: the von Essen Platinum Club Sandwich, created by Chef Daniel Galmiche (UK) and is available on the menu of Cliveden, Buckinghamshire, UK for £100 ($200).
  
  With support from an additional 100 volunteers from the local Jewish community who wrapped and counted the sandwiches, the pile of sandwiches at the end of the hour stood high -- a visible reminder of what it takes to feed those in need

   Following strict World Record standards, each of the 1,660 mitzvah project sandwich comprised two ingredients between two pieces of bread, in this case, soy butter and jelly in recognition of growing allergy sensitivities in the community.

  UJA-Federation of New York sponsored this mitzvah project on a day dedicated to good deeds that make a difference in our local communities.

  After recording the event for World Record certification, the sandwiches were immediately donated to the Queens Jewish Community Council in Forest Hills, a UJA-Federation beneficiary agency, and to the Long Island-based INN, the Interfaith Nutrition Network located in Hempstead.

   "UJA-Federation mitzvah projects are designed to energize children and families from the Jewish community into action," explained Amy Mandell, co-chair of the UJA-Federation World Record.

  "The challenge of making more than 1,500 sandwiches to set the record in just one hour stepped up the excitement into a frenzy of good will."

 "All of our volunteers came away with a greater understanding that in one hour's time, it's possible to make a difference in the lives of so many who experience hunger and poverty in New York, while engaging them in our Jewish community," stated co-chair Barrie Overend.

  "Poverty in New York and on Long Island is all around us, though not often visible.   Throughout our communities there are families still suffering from the difficult economic climate, hungry behind the doors of their middle class homes, perhaps right next door," added co-chair Beth Eichenholtz.

  "Through mitzvah projects, the Jewish community remembers that it's important to make a difference in our local communities and that we touch the lives of those in need."
