Hakhel This is the first time I have ever heard of Hakhel. I am a convert , and so happy to know now of this mitzvah. I feel within my heart today a new and higher awaking. A desire to make a stronger commitment to HaShem; a teshuva to keep all the words of Torah with the help of G-D. Today I heard from Har Sinai through your teaching. Thank you. Reply
