BOSTON (AP) - Two Hanukkah menorah lightings have been scheduled in Boston to celebrate the start of the eight-day Jewish Festival of Lights.

The city of Boston’s menorah lighting is scheduled for 4:45 p.m. Sunday on Summer Street in Downtown Crossing.

Mayor Marty Walsh is scheduled to be joined at the lighting of the 15-foot menorah by the Israel Consul General, Yehuda Yaacov, and Rabbi Rachmiel Liberman of Congregation Lubavitch Synagogue.

The lighting of an 18-foot menorah is scheduled to take place at the Statehouse at 4 p.m. on Monday.

Gov. Charlie Baker and House Speaker Robert DeLeo are among the state officials scheduled to attend with Rabbi Liberman.

The ceremony will include music by students from the Schechter Day School.
