Rabbi's Message

Join us for Chanukah 2021!

Chanukah is coming, and we want to take this opportunity to wish you and yours a very happy and inspiring eight-day Festival of Lights!

Reading and sharing is great, but the most important thing do is to light the menorah. Click here for a full guide with all of the information you need to fulfill this mitzvah.

Be sure to check out our Chanukah event directory. Chances are there is a Chanukah event near you. Click here to search now.

And, finally, please remember that all our activities are only made possible by...YOU! To donate and help Chabad of Hawaii shine the Chanukah lights brightly throughout Oahu, please click here and consider donating generously! May you be blessed with a "shining" year in return!

Happy Chanukah!

Rabbi Itchel and Perel Krasnjansky
