The berachah for Hallel on Rosh Chodesh


We have noted that the practice of reciting Hallel on Rosh Chodesh is a minhag, rather than a requirement of the day. Therefore, there is some debate as to whether one recites a berachah for this recitation.

General Ashkenazi practice is to recite a berachah for Hallel on Rosh Chodesh, as we do for various other minhagim. However, one should make sure to do this with a minyan, or at least several other people, to satisfy the view that one only recites the berachah for a communal recitation of Hallel.

(Shulchan Aruch Orach Chaim 422:2; Mishneh Berurah 422:15-16)

Have a great day,
