TImberwolves Attempting To Set World Record For Dreidel Spinning

Last month, as we mentioned here, the Minnesota Wild set a Guinness World Record for the number of mustachioed men in one place. They did it as part of their “Movember” promotion to raise funds for and awareness of men’s health.

Not wanting to be left out of the world record party, the Minnesota Timberwolves are attempting to set one of their own.

On December 8, the Minnesota Timberwolves will play host to the Oklahoma City Thunder at the Target Center. The team has also chosen that night to celebrate Jewish Heritage Night. In conjunction with this, the team is going to attempt to set the Guinness World Record for the most people spinning dreidels at the same time.

In addition to the attempt at the dreidel-spinning record, there will be a Hannukah fun zone, kosher food, Jewish games and sing-alongs, and a menorah lighting. In addition, $5 from each ticket sold for the game goes to benefit the Jewish Foundations of St. Paul and Minneapolis.

If you’re interested in being part of the attempt at the record, the dreidel-spinning festivities will begin promptly at 5:30 PM at the Target Center. The menorah lighting will take place at 6:30, and tip-off between the Wolves and Thunder is scheduled for 7:00 PM.
