Hallel & Al HaNissim on Yom haAtzmaut and Yom Yerushalayim?

Updated: Sep 9, 2022

Part One: Should We Say Hallel?

Yes. That's clear halachically. Hear the sources and an explanation of the nasi. So why do so many Jews refuse to say Hallel? Because they think that doing so wouldn't fit their political point of view. Other b'rachoth to be said on these days, and the difference between a state and a regime.

Part 1

Part Two: Hallel is a Torah Misswah

The Hatham Sofer explains. The rationale behind the date of 5 Iyyar - for the first time in 2,000 years the Jews became sovereign in their own land. Was it correct to found the state then? Why don't we say Hallel for the Yom Kippur War?

Part 2

Part Three: Should We Say Al Hanissim?

A reply to religious Jews who don't say Hallel because they see the State as fighting them. Think twice before are giving up on the State. Why some Jews say Hallel without a b'racha.

Part 3
