    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?

    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?

    The Gemara in Shabbos says that we make a Bracha on Chanuka Lecht because of Lo Sasur.

    In hachi nami, I just haven’t heard megillah leining rescently.

    So the mitzvah that we are mechaven with v’tzivanu is lo sasur?

    The gemara says it davka about Chanuka, but IIRC acharonim mention it about achilas maror.

    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.

    Lander, what about Al Achilas Matzah?

    “or hallel”

    Or even better, Hallel on Rosh Chodesh. According to all opinions it is minhag, not halachah.

    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)

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