Hallel for Chanukah


Throughout Chanukah we add the "Hallel" prayer to Shacharit (the morning service). Hallel is a prayer of praise, thanking Gd for His miracles on our behalf; it is found on page 632 of the standard Artscroll siddur (prayer book).

Although the miracle of Chanukah was only a single miracle, each day is recognized as a miracle unto itself, and so we say Hallel anew each day.

(Code of Jewish Law Orach Chaim 683:1; Mishneh Berurah 683:1)

Have a great day,
