Giant outdoor Menorah lighting

The Chabad Center of University City’s Menorah Lighting will take place at 4:30 p.m. Sunday at the Westfield UTC, 4545 La Jolla Village Drive.

The 8-foot-tall outdoor menorah will be lit to commemorate the beginning of Chanukah.

Each year, the Chabad Center of University City places the oversized Menorah at the shopping destination to share with the public. A candle will be lit each night of Chanukah.

The event Sunday will include a celebration with food, entertainment, traditional music and free menorahs and candles for local children. Westfield UTC sponsors this year’s event.
