Shabbat HaGadol, the “Sabbath of the Great [One]” is the designation used for the Sabbath just preceding Passover, which was always the occasion for a “great” sage of rank to exhort the assembled congregation concerning the upcoming Passover Festival. At Shearith Israel, this Shabbat is also observed as the anniversary of the consecration of its 2nd Mill St. Synagogue Building, which was completed and officially dedicated just in time for Passover 1818.
