The Central Suffolk Jewish Alliance brought together 150 children to the in Port Jefferson Station to assemble the world's tallest menorah made up of Legos on Sunday. Whether they actually broke any world's records is still unclear but a menorah was indeed constructed entirely of the small toy blocks.
According to Beth Berman, president of the Central Suffolk Jewish Alliance, the Lego menorah measured 13 and a half feet when it was completed.
"The Lego architect said it tied for the tallest he has built," she said.
The children thought the event was "fabulous" according to Berman. At the event children said that they enjoyed meeting other Jewish kids from other towns and one said that it "made me proud of my Jewish heritage."
Other positives the children relayed to Berman were that they liked working as a team with other kids and they liked working with their parents on the project.
The Central Suffolk Jewish Alliance is composed of 12 synagogues throughout the region whose mission according to their website is to "strengthen and enhance the identity of the Jewish community in Suffolk County."
