Since Hanukkah is not mentioned in the Torah, why do we say bercahot with hashem’s name, especially lehadlik ner which includes “asher kiddishanu bemitzvotav”. If hanukah is not part of the commandments directly and is derabanan, it seems a bit weird. I think I’m probably just mixing up some concepts I learned in my Yeshiva high school.
