Disambiguation Page
There's a number of instances in which Hallel is supposed to be said. Please find the page relevant to the specific Hallel you are looking for.

  • It is not said on Purim, see Customs of Purim.
  • There is no Hallel on Rosh HaShanah and Yom Kippur because one should not sing on days when judgment is being rendered[1]

General Laws

  1. The proper place for the recital of Hallel is immediately after Shacharit. This is true even on a day that we recite Musaf and technically musaf should be recited first since it is said more often and tadir visheayno tadir, tadir kodem (the item said performed more often should precede the less common).[2]
  2. Hallel should be recited during the day and not at night.[3]
  3. Hallel should be recited while standing[4] Some say that during hallel one shouldn't lean on a shtender in a way that one would fall if the shtender was removed.[5] Someone who recited Hallel while sitting need not repeat it [6]
  4. An elderly person who has a hard time standing may recite Hallel while seated even lechatchila.[7]
  5. If someone misses a word or sentence he must return to the place he omitted [8]

Interrupting Hallel

  1. In Hallel of Yom Tov one can interrupt just as one would for Kriyat Shema. That is, between paragraphs one can greet someone whom one has to respect and return a greeting to anyone. In the middle of paragraphs one can only greet someone whom one has to fear and return greetings to someone whom one has to respect.[9]
