Any option to have this on a multi channel device (to control a few different lights, with different settings, and not needing to have a few devices)

Using esphome everything is possible and is fairly easy form a coding standpoint. It's not user friendly though.

That means that there is not really any device ready for a few channels

There are multi relay boards that you can buy, for example sonoff sells one

I see this, but I'm looking for something with a switch, as I'll be using this in a shul, where plans can change on the go. I know it can add wifi switches. So ny question is if all these will be compatible with your software.

And your software is compatible with it? Or it needs tweaking?
Every new device needs tweaking to get it to match that devices pin layout, and to add a few more relays would require a bit more tweaking. Not for the faint of heart, but should be relatively easy for the diy style person :)

Most devices don't have a real time clock in them so it's unreliable to keep a clock running without internet. Definitely doable with some DIYing. (requires minor tweaking to the source code for the time)

Sonoff came out with a new version which supports Bluetooth. Some new toys :)

Anyone have a link to a good light switch I can try Melacha Plug with? I currently use Zman Switch but in a power outage it resets. Additionally, I find myself replacing it every few years (defect?) I want to try a cheaper option.

Also, with this, is it easy to add timers for the light to turn on/off, multiple times per Shabbos/YT?

In it's current implementation it's meant strictly for set and forget it applications. For things that need to be either always on or off for shabbos and yom tov

Anyone know of any other switch (GE, Leviton Kasa) that has an easy way to integrate full Jewish Calendar and set times for each holiday? (I feel like I am asking for too much, but you never know...)

I have that set up on smart things. When mode is shabbos/yt then there is a trigger set up that when the switch turns on it turns it right back off. Though this only helps for the light not being on. You still would have had the issue of having turned on the light

Or just use Home Assistant

Could that do what I need? programs on/off, and preload the entire jewish calendar?

Yes. It a system which runs separately but locally, look it up.

Home Assistant can probably work offline, would need a router without internet so the smart devices can be on the same network.

Thanks, I didn't realize it had integrations. Hopefully this will work for me:
