What is the Jewish calendar?
The Jewish calendar is used to determine the dates of the Jewish holidays, the Torah portions, Jewish memorial dates for the death of a relative, etc.
It is a lunisolar calendar based on lunar months of 29 days alternating with 30 days. The lunar year is about 11 days shorter than the solar year. Therefore, an additional month is added every 2-3 years to balance the difference between the lunar year of 12 lunar months and the solar year.
According to the Hebrew calendar, the Jewish day starts at sunset rather than midnight. Therefore, Jewish holidays begin at sunset the day before the date on the calendar.
Do you also have a Hebrew calendar?
Yes, see the Hebrew calendar.
When does the Jewish year start?
The Jewish calendar year starts on Rosh Hashana (the Jewish New Year). This usually falls around September or October but it is determined by the Jewish / Hebrew calendar so the date on the Gregorian calendar usually changes each year.
What is the first month of the Jewish calendar?
Tishrei is the first month of the Jewish year. The first day of Tishrei begins with a period of repentance. There are many Jewish holidays in Tishrei.
The first two holidays are known as the High Holy Days. The first ten days of Tishrei are known as the Ten Days of Repentance.
- Rosh Hashanah (the Jewish New Year) falls on the first day of Tishrei. The Jewish New Year starts a period of repentance and prayer which lasts 10 days and ends on Yom Kippur (the Day of Atonement). Traditional, honey and sweet food are eaten to symbolize a sweet year ahead. Pomegranates are also typically eaten on Rosh Hashanah. Pomegranates are said to have exactly 613 seeds symbolizing the 613 commandments of the Torah. The shofar is also sounded.
- Yom Kippur (The Day of Atonement) is the day when people are judged for their behavior the previous year. During this day, people fast and pray.
- Sukkot (The Feast of Tabernacles) this holiday is in remembrance of the journey that the Jews took from ancient Egypt to the Promised Land during which they lived in temporary houses (Sukkot).
