# On all eight days of [[Chanukah]] one should say complete [[Hallel]] with a bracha before and after.<ref> Tosefta [[Sukkah]] 3:2, Tanit 28b, Erchin 10a, Masechet Soferim 20:9, Yerushalmi [[Sukkah]] 4:5 list 18 days a year when we say [[Hallel]]. This is also the opinion of Rambam ([[Chanukah]] 3:5), Tur and S”A 683. Bahag counts [[Hallel]] as one of the 613 mitzvot and Rambam (Sefer Mitzvot, Shoresh 1) argues it’s not Deoritta. Nonetheless, Netsiv (Emek HaShelah) says that the Bahag only means it was Deoritta the year that [[Chanukah]] happened and every year afterwords is only Derabanan against the Chatom Sofer Y”D 233 writes that it’s a Deoritta every year. Sh”t Bet Sharim O”C 373 and Sh”t Binyan Shlomo argue on the Chatom Sofer. </ref>
# The Sephardic custom to say the bracha “Asher Kidishanu… Legmor Et Ha[[Hallel]]”. Ashkenazim say the bracha “Asher Kidishanu… Likroh Et Ha[[Hallel]]”.<ref> Mordechai ([[Shabbat]] 2:286), and Orchot Chaim (Tefilat HaMoadim 5 pg 77d) quote the dispute between the Maharam who says to say Likroh and not Ligmor because if one missing a letter it’ll be a [[bracha levatalah ]] and the Rabbenu Peretz argues that Ligmor just means to read as in [[Brachot]] 9b. Rosh, Tur 488, Hagahot Maimon (Megilah 3:3), S”A Shulchan Aruch O.C. 644 rule that the sephardic custom is to say Ligmor. </ref>
# If a Sephardi said the bracha with the word Likroh he fulfills his obligation. So too is an Ashekenazi said the bracha with the word Ligmor he fulfills his obligation.<ref> Chazon Ovadyah pg 209, Ner Mitzvah pg 32, and Sh”t Olot Yitzchak Ratzavi 84 say that an sephardic can fulfill his obligation with the word Likroh because the Maharam would use that word Lechatchila. Chazon Ovadyah only wrote about a sephardi who forgot, seemingly because the case of an Ashkenazi who forgot is obvious; all the more an Ashkenazi can rely on the S”A to say Ligmor. </ref>
# If one forgot to make the Bracha before [[Hallel]] one can make it in the middle of [[Hallel]] and continue from there.<ref> Birkei Yosef 683 (quoted by Chazon Ovadyah ([[Chanukah]] pg 209)) says even for Sephardim who say the work Ligmor it’s okay to make the bracha in the middle because Ligmor just means to read as the Tur says in Siman 488. </ref>
# Whether women are obligated in [[Hallel]] since they too were included in the miracle is a dispute among the poskim.<ref> Sh"t Minchat Shlomo Tinyana 58:1) and Rav Yosef Shalom Elyashiv (Kovetz Teshuvos 3:105) rule that they are not obligated. Shevet HaLevi 1:205 and Rav Chaim Kanievsky (See Sefer Doleh u'mashkeh page 238), rule that they are obligated. </ref>
# According to sephardic Sephardic custom, women are exempt from reciting [[Hallel]] but may do so without a beracha.<ref> Sh"t Yabia Omer 6:46 </ref>
