    Hallel on Chanukah

    Chassidism explains why Hallel is said on Chanukah and not on Purim.

    It says that on Purim the body of the Jew was saved, whilst on Chanukah it was his soul.

    The freedom of religion which Chanukah symbolises is summarised in a poem by Dryden that says, “Of all the tyrannies of human kind, the worst is that which persecutes the mind”.
