Hakhel the Year of Gathering

The year of Hakhel commemorates the Jewish people, men, women and children, gathering once every seven years at the Temple in Jerusalem. Where the king would read from the Torah "...In order that they hear, and in order that they learn and fear the Lord, your G‑d, and they will observe all the words of this Torah" — Deuteronomy 31:10-12.
