Spiritual explanation: The Shabbat before Passover is called “The Great Shabbat” (Shabbat HaGadol), because a great miracle occurred on that day.
If we only allow ourselves to pull ourselves a bit back and out from our enmeshed lives, we can transcend many of our doubts, and see new opportunities, as an old world gives way to a new one.
We don’t really know when and where the “Great Shabbat” got its name. The history of Shabbat HaGadol and its name seems to be muddled, almost intentionally, in obscurity.
