BROOKLYN - Thousands of women rolled and baked their way into the Guinness World Records by creating the world's largest challah.

The 2,000 women used 40 pounds of flour, 5 gallons of water and other ingredients to make the massive loaf measuring 20 feet by 16 inches. It took more than an hour to bake.

A representative from Guinness World Records Ltd. was on hand and officially declared the final product the world's largest braided bread.

The communal challah is part of the Shabbos project, which aims to connect people and celebrate Jewish culture.

The bread will be part of a parade and then cut open and eaten this Friday.
