Hanukkah, the festival of lights, began at sundown in New Zealand Sunday evening.

Rabbi Ariel Tal, an emissary of the Strauss-Amiel Institute from the Or Torah Stone Network, and the rabbi of New Zealand's Wellington communities, held the first candle-lighting ceremony for Hanukkah in the world.

About 50 people attended the event.
