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.
