This past Shabbos, the members of Chabad in the Toronto community got together for a grand Friday night meal and Shabbos day seudas Shabbos kiddush. Rabbi Yossi Paltiel was brought down to inspire anash, nshei, and the children too.
The entire weekend was really one long farbrengen as Rabbi Paltiel encouraged the listeners to strengthen their hiskashrus.
Perhaps the most beautiful part of the entire event was the feeling of achdus, of unity it brought among community members. Sitting together at a beautifully arranged table, in a beautifully decorated room where the wine was tasty and the delicious food flowed, a special kind of closeness was created.
The excitement was palpable, all felt welcome. A successful kids program ran simultaneously to the Friday night seuda so the adults could focus on Rabbi Paltiel.
Organizers gave a tremendous yasher koach to Yossi and Lilach Reinitz and all those that initiated and planned this beautiful Shabbos Hakhel.
