All they want for Hannukkah is a new world record.

Two Yeshiva University students want to beat the current holder of the top place for dreidel spinning in the Guinness Book of World Records.

They, along with 540 others, are planning to attempt to break the record of 541 simultaneously spinning dreidels on Tuesday night. It's happening at the school's athletic center at 184th Street and Amsterdam Avenue.

The "Dreidelpalooza" event is also a scholarship fundraising event.

The record for spinning the four sided tops was set five years ago in New Jersey.
