Additions In Teffilah On Chanukah

The Daily Halacha Moment - Additions in Teffilah & Chanukah 🕎

״כל השונה הלכות בכל יום - מובטח לו שהוא בן

‎העולם הבא״ (נידה עג ע״א, מגילה כח:)

“Anyone who studies Halachot every day is guaranteed that he is destined for the world-to-come” (Megilla 28b, Niddah 73a)


What other additions do we add to our teffilot on Chanukah?


There are several things that we add to our teffilot during chanukah aside from Al HaNissim.

On all eight days of Chanukah, the complete Hallel is recited with a Berachah. [1]

Women are exempt from reciting Hallel

on Chanukah. If a Sefardic woman wants to recite Hallel, she may do so without a berachah. [2]

Similarly, on Chanukah, Tachanun, Tzidkatecha, and Tzidduk HaDin are omitted. [3] After reciting the Shir Shel Hayom, one should recite Mizmor Shir Chanukat Habayit. [4]
