Update:  There was no clear sighting of the new moon in the Middle East on Monday the 10th of September. Yom Teruah will, therefore, begin on the evening of the 11th of September.



The dates for the spring feasts below are based on the assumptions that the aviv barley will be found before and when the new crescent moon of the first month is sighted March 18 in Jerusalem. The dates will be updated after 18th of March if there will be changes. Remember to wait for the new moon update also in the seventh month to know for sure.

1st Day of Unleavened Bread – April 2
7th Day of Unleavened Bread – April 8

About the calender:

We start every month at new moon, every new year is determined by the barley and new moon. Every biblical day starts at sunset and ends the next sunset.
So every day start the evening before the day displayed on the calendar. There are several different ways people count to Pentecost.

We don’t think there are any accurate numbers on what year it is according to the Biblical calendar.
Jesus/Yeshua was most likely born in  5BCE according to the Julian calendar (Herod died in the spring of the year 4 BCE) or in spring 5BCE/ 4BCE .
He was most likely born in either the spring or in the fall and not December.
