Israeli Set Guinness Theater Record


Israeli actress Chana Meron has qualified for the Guinness world record as having "the longest theatrical record in history" by virtue of her 83 years on the stage. In recent months, she has begun to act in the Cameri Theater's production of the Chanoch Levin play Orez Hamizvadot (The Baggage Packer) and has no intention of stepping down now.

Interviewed by Arutz Sheva's Hebrew service, Meron said she would act as long as she is wanted and capable, and was moved by the Guinness title. In 1970, she lost her leg in a terrorist attack on an El Al plane but returned to work in spite of the hurdle.
