A pair of Yeshiva University students are hoping their school is tops - for at least one night.
The duo devised "Dreidelpalooza," their bid to break the world record for most people simultaneously spinning the four-sided Chanukah tops - while raising much-needed scholarship money for fellow students.
"People are really excited. They think it's cool," said Jason Katz, whose group Students Helping Students will benefit from the dizzying display.
"It's something everybody who's involved can tell their kids, tell their grandkids - I was part of a world record."
Katz and fellow junior Fiona Guedalia need 540 dreidel devotees to join them tomorrow night at the school's Max Stern Athletic Center at 184th St. and Amsterdam Ave. to topple the current mark of 541, set five years ago at Temple Emanuel in Cherry HillN.J.
Once set in motion, the whole topsy-turvy thing is expected to last just 10 seconds - and then hopefully endure in the Guinness Book of World Records.
"It's open to the public," said Katz. "And we'll be offering tutorials for dreidel amateurs."
