In the ancient times of the Beit Hamikdash (the Holy Temple in Jerusalem,) every 8th year was considered a year of “ Hakhel” (“gathering/unity”) and the entire Jewish nation would gather together to hear the Torah read by the king of Israel on the Temple Mount. It was a time to reconnect and recommit to G-d and the Torah and was therefore a commandment for all, “men, women and children.” Young and old alike.
The Chabad Rebbe encouraged all to participate in the special year of “ Hakhel” although we don’t have the Holy Temple in Jerusalem. Any type of event or opportunity to gather together in Jewish unity, large or small.
And through this year of “ Hakhel” may we merit to have the rebuilding of the Beit Hamikdash with the coming of Moshiach speedily in our days!!
