Here’s a cool fact about Jerusalem hospitality during Temple times! Three times a year, Jews from all over the nation ascended to the Temple, including on Passover. There was a custom for Jerusalemites to warmly welcome and host all visitors, free of charge. It was this custom that led today’s verse to be interpreted by our Sages as “all Israel are ‘chaverim’ – friends,” a word sharing the same root ח-ב-ר as “joined together.”
