Shehechiyanu for Chanukah and Purim


The days of Chanukah and Purim do not have inherent sanctity. Therefore, one would not recite Shehechiyanu for them, other than upon performing their unique mitzvot.

This is different from Yom Kippur, for example, when one recites Shechiyanu separate from the performance of any Yom Kippur-related mitzvah.

(Rav Moshe Feinstein, Igrot Moshe Orach Chaim 5:43:2)

Have a great day,
