I know this is a very simple question, but why do we make a boracha on netilas yadayim and more specifically, why do we say “v’tzvivanu” on this d’rabonon?July 17, 2011 4:29 pm at 4:29 pm #953159ItcheSrulikMember
We say v’tzivanu on many mitzvos m’d’rabbanan. Why are you asking on netilas yadayim and not krias hamegilla or hallel? Or achilas maror for that matter?July 17, 2011 5:00 pm at 5:00 pm #953160HaLeiViParticipant
The Gemara in Shabbos says that we make a Bracha on Chanuka Lecht because of Lo Sasur.July 17, 2011 8:20 pm at 8:20 pm #953161Derech HaMelechMember
In hachi nami, I just haven’t heard megillah leining rescently.
So the mitzvah that we are mechaven with v’tzivanu is lo sasur?July 17, 2011 9:34 pm at 9:34 pm #953162on the ballParticipant
yes the gemora asks that very question – (where were we commanded?) answers the gemara – ‘ Lo sosur.July 18, 2011 12:09 am at 12:09 am #953163ItcheSrulikMember
The gemara says it davka about Chanuka, but IIRC acharonim mention it about achilas maror.July 25, 2011 11:48 pm at 11:48 pm #953164yitayningwutParticipant
The Gemara (Chullin 105a) asks it regarding netilas yadayim as well and answers ???? ????? ???? ?????.April 3, 2013 3:08 pm at 3:08 pm #953165LanderTalmidParticipant
It could be for maror that the lashon “asher kidishanu ..al achilas maror” is thanking hashem for the original mitzvah of maror that was the makor for the takanah which we have today.
This could also be a reason for the lashon “al achilas” and not “lechol maror” since we are not actually now doing the mitzva.April 4, 2013 2:48 am at 2:48 am #953166HaLeiViParticipant
Lander, what about Al Achilas Matzah?April 4, 2013 2:53 am at 2:53 am #953167charliehallParticipant
Or even better, Hallel on Rosh Chodesh. According to all opinions it is minhag, not halachah.May 14, 2013 10:26 pm at 10:26 pm #953168LanderTalmidParticipant
So why do we say “al achilas matzah/maror?” According to those that a continued mitzvah gets an ‘al’ we can answer that korech/afikoman are continuations of these mitzvos. (retraction from previous post)May 17, 2013 5:13 pm at 5:13 pm #953169musser zogerParticipant

Yes, Hallel on Rosh Chodesh is minhag and it is halacha. I think you mean it isn’t a chiyuv.
