Divrei Torah on the Hagadah: NILI 5775
Rosh Kollel, Rabbi Reuven Brand
The Shabbat before Pesach is known as Shabbat Hagadol, the Great Shabbat. It is called this in celebration of the great miracle that occurred on that day. It was on the 10th day of the month of Nissan (which that year was a Shabbat) that the Jewish people were commanded to take a lamb, which at the time was considered a deity by the Egyptians, and tie it to their bedposts.
