Lubavitch, Bahais among groups chosen for Hawaii City Lights

HONOLULU (AP) -- Jewish and Bahai groups are among five private organizations chosen to display lights on City Hall grounds during the holidays in December.

The National Spiritual Assembly of Bahais of the Hawaiian Islands and Chabad Lubavitch of Hawaii each won a space in the Honolulu City Lights celebration.

The groups were selected this month through a lottery established in 1997, after the American Atheists accused the city of giving a Christian group a preferred site.

The other groups selected this year were the Parents, Families and Friends of Lesbians and Gays, an advocacy group; Goodwill Industries of Hawaii, a workshop for disabled employees; and Kamaaina Care, an affiliate of Kamaaina Kids, operators of preschools.
