Israeli magician Israel Cagliostro set a new Guinness World’s record when he taught 1, 573 Jewish, Muslim and Christian schoolchildren a new magic trick at the Haifa International Convention Center last week. The event was called “Haifa Magic for Peace.”

In doing so he broke the previous record set by Scottish magician Kevin McMahon in 2012.

Children from 25 different schools took part in the event intended to promote peaceful co-existence which was organized by the Haifa Municipality and Beit HaGefen, a Jewish-Arab cultural center.

The children were given decks of cards with words like Peace, Coexistence and Dialogue written on them in Hebrew and Arabic. The trick was to have a friend select a card and then make that card rise out of the pack.

Haifa Mayor Yona Yahav told the audience, “It is vital that ‘Haifa Magic for Peace’ breaks the Guinness World Record. Around the world, people are unaware that here in Haifa, we have been living together in peace for over a century. I hope that the world over, people will learn this special magic trick for peace and think of the peaceful coexistence that we cherish here daily in the city of Haifa.”
