Shabbat Hagadol Calendar Stuff

During a non-leap year, Shabbat Hagadol always falls out on Parshat Tzav. During a leap year, it can fall out on either Metzora or Aharei Mot.

Consider the table below. This table goes backwards 300 years - from 5815 (2055) back to 5516 (1756).

Notice that whether it falls out on Metzora or Aharei Mot comes in streaks. Just using the data below (I haven't checked before or after the aformentioned range), it can fall out on Metzora up to 8 leap years in a row (which only occurred once in this range of years - from 5594-5613[1834-1853]) and it can fall out on Aharei Mot up to 4 leap years in a row. Next year, 5774 (2014), will be the last of 4 leap-year Shabbatot Hagadol in a row that have fallen out on Parshat Aharei Mot. The last time 4 leap-year Shabbatot Hagadol in a row have fallen out on Parshat Aharei Mot was from 5518-5527 (1758-1767) - almost 250 years ago!

Perhaps, the significance is that we will no longer be cast away as a Metzora, but rather, we will be Aharei Mot - after the period of death and into a new era of life for all mankind.  And after 4 times of Aharei Mot in this era of Ikveta Dimshiha, we can finally achieve הנה אנכי שלח לכם את אליה הנביא, which is read on Shabbat Hagadol.

May we achieve it even this year - before the 4 times.  This year, it falls out on Tzav, which is an expression of Ziruz, as Rashi points out.  May Hashem be Zariz to redeem us this year in this Hodesh Nissan, Amen.

Passover this year starts the night of March 25. Did you know that this is the earliest Passover in over 110 years (since 1899)? Passover will not fall this early again until 2089!
Looks like Hashem hastens Geula, may this month of Nissan 5773 be the month of Geula Shelema, Amen!
