WAIPOULI — Hanukkah, the Festival of Light, begins Sunday evening.
Rabbi Michoel Goldman of the Kauai Jewish Center said Hanukkah celebrates two miracles: The “victory of the few over the many, the force of good over evil, as well as the miracle of the oil, enough for merely one day, burning for eight days.”
There will be children’s activities at the Kauai Jewish Center, 4531 Pouli Road, Waipouli, from 10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Sunday. The cost is $7. It is billed as a chance to “join us for a fun-filled morning in preparation for Hanukkah,” he said.
The community Hanukkah party is set for 5 p.m. Sunday at the center. There will be food, games, music and the lighting of menorahs.
A menorah lighting and an inspirational message are set for 5:30 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 26, at the Grand Hyatt Resort &Spa in Poipu.
Another menorah lighting is set for 5:30 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 29, at the Princeville Resort. It is on the bluff overlooking Hanalei Bay on the eighth night of Hanukkah.
The final event, culminating Hanukkah in the world, will be held at the Historic County Building at 5:30 p.m. Dec. 30. This is a symbolic lighting in the closing hours of Hanukkah, to bring the light into the post-Hanukkah days.
