Record Breaking Yom Ha’atzmaut Celebrations!

On Thursday 9 May, we celebrated Israel’s 71st birthday with an incredible, Guinness-World-Record-breaking feat. Bialik College students and staff gathered together to create the world’s largest human menorah. It took 1048 students from the ELC through to the Senior School, as well as teachers and staff to form the shape of the menorah – what an exciting experience for all involved! To align to the Guinness World Record’s strict conditions, two official counters had clickers recording the impressive number of people involved. The record was last set in December 2017 with 577 people involved at a school in New Jersey.

Yom Ha’atzmaut was spent in joyous celebrations with activities such as Israeli dancing, flag raising, chamsot making, a film festival and many more to cultivate the students’ love for Israel. Everyone enjoyed a delicious Israeli-style lunch and dressed in blue and white.
