Q. Do women say Hallel during Chanuka? Are they obliged as in the seder of Pesach?
A. Poskim disagree, Mogen Avrohom (422: 5) rules that women are exempt from reciting Hallel during Chanuka, since it constitutes a ‘mitzvas assei shehazman gramah’ or a time dependent mitzva that women are usually exempt. So is Horav Eliashiv’s zt’l opinion (Kovetz Teshuvos 3: 105) and Horav S”Z Auerbach zt’l. (Minchas Shlomo 2: 58: 5).
However, Chavas Yoir (Mekor Chaim 644), Toras Refoel (Pesach 75), Igrois Moshe (O.H. 1: 190), Shevet Halevi 1: 205, Kovetz Halochos p. 41, and others maintain that women should indeed recite Hallel during Pesach.
Horav Shlomo Miller’s Shlit’a opinion is to follow this last opinion.
