No Strangers This Time

Shavuos 15a

מכאן ואילך עבודתן מחנכתן
                    
The Rambam writes a   זר may light the Menorah in the Bais Hamikdash. In order for a זר to light, it would require bringing out the Menora to where the זר may stand. After the זר lights it the Kohanim return the Menorah back to its place. 

This proves that at the Bais Hamikdash we don't Pasken.  עושה מצוההדלקה Otherwise it would be Pasul being it was lit in the wrong place.

If this is true then why for Chanukah do we  pasken   הדלקה עושה מצוה ?
Shouldn't it have the same Din as in the Bais Hamikdash?

The Rogatchover Gaon zt”l says:
 “in the times  of Bayis Sheini (no Shemen Hamishcha ) 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 Harav Hagaon Reb Shlomo Miller Shlita said:
with this Rogatchover we can understand why we pasken by Chanukah, הדלקה עושה מצוה .

Chazal wanted to commemorate the Chinuch of the new Menorah , which required a Kohein to do the Hadlakah which was done inside.
Therefore we Paskin for Chanuka Licht הדלקה עושה מצוה


אחת ושבע          
ואני הקטן הוספתי ,ובזה מיושב קושיית הב"י
ביום א' התקינו לזכר חנוכת המנורה 
                                                                                                         ( קידוש כלי שרת)         

ועוד ז' זכר נס פך שמן
