Rosh Hashanah marks the start of Hakhel, commencing a year opportune for gaining inspiration and influencing others. SIE invites you to embark on a journey filled with insight, inspiration, and application of the mitzvah of Hakhel.
A seven-year cycle. Six years of toil. One year of rest.
And now it’s here.
As we usher in 5783, anticipating a year of an abundance of brachos, we prepare by recalibrating our energies and ambitions before plunging into the new year.
After six years of toil and one year of rest, the Jewish People would assemble for Hakhel — a monumental gathering where inspiration birthed recommitment to Torah. The momentum aroused by the grand Hakhel gathering promoted a unity that enabled the Hakhel participants to step into the new year with clarity, conviction, and strength.
Nowadays, we too can experience the spirit of Hakhel. Rosh Hashanah, the first day of the new year, marks the start of Hakhel, commencing a year opportune for gaining inspiration and influencing others. Sichos in English invites you to embark on a journey filled with insight, inspiration, and application of the mitzvah of Hakhel.
Gain a foundational understanding of the Hakhel mitzvah in Making the Past Present, a Hakhel Sichah in English, which is the first debut of many upcoming releases included in the Hakhel collection.
This Sicha provides the underpinning of the directive of “Hakhel”, the second to last mitzvah of the Torah which Moshe imparted to the Jewish People in his final address. Depth is brought to the Hakhel experience through referring to Hakhel as a recreation of the sensational Matan Torah experience.
After strenuous labor and spiritual upliftment, Hakhel, the culmination and fusion of the septennial cycle, fosters opportunity for inspiration, growth, and renewed commitment.
May each of us be blessed with an elevated Hakhel year permeated with unifying assemblies to inspire our personal and communal activities!
Kesiva V’chasima Tovah L’shanah Tovah Umesukah!
