Question:

Do you say harachaman hu yanchilaynu yom shekulo tov on chol hamoed in bentching? or just on yomtov itself? Source, please?

Answer:

The Achronim discuss your question and it depends if we term Chol Hamoed a “Yom Tov” or not. The Magen Avrohom O:CH 490-1, Chok Yackov ibid-4, and M:B ibid-5 say that we don’t call it a Yom Tov therefore we don’t say that harachaman on Chol Hamoed. However others say that it is said. See sources.
