Welcome to the home of Hakhel.


Hakhel, a not-for-profit volunteer organization, was formed in Flatbush in 5755 for the express purpose of uniting our communities through the study of Torah, acts of Chesed and the proper performance of Mitzvos.  Thus far, Hakhel has accomplished its goals through, B'EH, hundreds of public shiurim, including various Yarchei Kallah programs on legal holidays, large scale public gatherings on practical halachic and hashkafic topics and publication of numerous works on a regular basis.  Hakhel annually publishes a Master Gemach List, issues daily Community Awareness Bulletins, and has established the Yeshiva Mordechai HaTzadik on Purim nationwide.  Hakhel's affiliate, the V'Ani Tefillah Foundation, has a mission to increase the awareness of the importance and power of tefilla and to provide education, inspiration and tools for more sincere, powerful and effective tefilla.
