הדלקה לאו עבודה-Daf Yomi

Daf Hashavua
Yoma 24b  זאת חנוכה

הדלקה לאו עבודה

In Hilchos Chanukah we pasken   הדלקה עושה מצוה whereas according to the Rambam ,
at the Bais Hamikdash , a   זר  may light the Menorah.( even Lekatchila)  The way it would
be done , by taking the Menorah out and have the זר light and then return it back to it’s place. 

The obvious question  , if at the Bais Hamikdash we pasken הנחה עושה מצוה ,
Why for Chanukah do we pasken   הדלקה עושה מצוה ?

The Rogatchover-Reb Yosef Rozen

The Rogatchover Gaon zt”l says “in the times Of Bayis Sheini when there was no Shemen Hmishcha the way to be mekadesh a new Kli Shoreis, was having a Kohen  use it for the first time, during the Avodah.

During the Nes Chanukah  they lit with a new Menorah for the first time.

To be Mekadesh  the new Menorah,required Kohanim to light the Menorah

Mori V’rabi Hagaon R. Shlomo Miller Shlita said with this Rogatchover we understand why we pasken הדלקה עושה מצוה . Chazal wanted to commemorate the Chinuch of the new Menorah ,which required a Kohein to do the
the Hadlakah.

אחת ושבע                   
ואני הקטן הוספתי ,ובזה מיושב קושיית הב"י –
ביום א' התקינו לזכר חנוכת המנורה          
ועוד ז' זכר נס פך שמן
