"The Great Shabbat"

 

THE GREAT SHABBAT!

 

(The following is a direct quote from Chabad.org.)

 

"The Shabbat before Pesach is called "Shabbat Hagadol" (the "Great Shabbat") for a number of reasons..."

 

(Reason 4)

 

"4) The Haftorah read in many communities on this Shabbat speaks of the coming of Moshiach, referring to the day of his arrival as the "yom Hashem hagadol v'hanora" -- the "great" and awesome day of the L-rd."
