Shabbat HaGadol – The Great Sabbath

Haftarah: Mal 3:4-24
Apostolic: Mat 26:17-30
Commentary: Shabbat HaGadol (PDF, 235 KB)

Shabbat HaGadol is the Sabbath immediately preceding Pesach. It is the Sabbath on which final details regarding the observance of the Passover were discussed and taught. Thus, it was not uncommon that the teaching on Shabbat HaGadol became long, and some even jokingly have remarked that the reason it is called “great” is because it refers to the length of the rabbi’s sermon!
