Join The Hakhel Party

A new year is approaching, and in the undercurrent of every Chossid's "Elul-wind" is a special urgency: the year of Hakhel is upon us. The Rebbe transformed Hakhel from a rare event involving the King's recitation of the Torah, to a widespread campaign obligating every one of us to inspire our sphere of influence.

Hakhel is considered so vital, that on Sukkos, Shnas Hakhel 5748, the Rebbe veered from the way he had observed the Friediker Rebbe unite the arbah minim during the recitation of Hallel. "Despite personal hardship and raising a notion, chas veshalom, of a lack of hiskashrus to my Rebbe," the Rebbe later stated, "I held the lulav and esrog together so extensively to affect the great unity of Hakhel!"

Fellow Chassidim, mekusharim of the Rebbe! As Hakhel approaches, let's internalize the Rebbe's act of mesiras nefesh. It's time to reexamine our loyalty to the Lulav party and ensuing exclusion of Rabbi or Rebbetzin Esrog on the grounds of our hiskashrus to our Rebbe. It's time to surrender our sanctions and evasions, our disputes and partisan relationships and gather all branches together in pursuit of the ultimate candidate.

Vote Hakhel!

Please post your hachlatos for increasing in Hakhel and hiskashrus L'iluy Nishmas Chaya Rochel Bas Yissachar Dov YIBLCH"T.

I believe that organizing a shiur in the Mamer Hcholtzu in the year 5659 would be an appropriate hachlota
Interesting to note that the coming Hakhel year would be 110 years from when the mamer was said 5659, and 20 years from when the Rebbe gave it out in 5789 to men age 12 and over and woman 11 and over in.
If you are Interested in participating in an English or Yiddish shiur, please contact rochiesnetwork@gmail.com to get this going.

If you will take this to heart and are going to an event or shul for the sake of Ahvas Yisroel and Hakhel, where you would not typically go because they are opposed to your philosophy of hiskashrus , remember that the Rebbes Nsius is in a way of chessed and rachamim. I suggest to flow the Rebbes example by the lulov and esrog to verbalize and explain what\way you are doing. (see sicha of the 5th eve of Succos 5748 - Hisvaduyos P. 245)
