When the Beis Hamikdosh stood in Jerusalem, every seventh year was known as a Year of Hakhel – a year of gathering. The entire Jewish nation would gather in Jerusalem, and the king would read passages of the Torah as all of the people – man, woman and child – would stand together in awe and reverence for the Word of G-d.
The Lubavitcher Rebbe, Rabbi Menachem M. Schneerson, of righteous memory, proclaimed that the spirit of the Year of Gathering can be relived today.
