Fourth New Moon Report!

Hi Everyone,

So we got one report that the New Moon WAS sighted in Israel today, however we only have 1 Witness, and normally we like two or more.

The evidence is still clear that he did indeed sight the moon, and as a skilled observer in Israel, we will trust him! See Picture Below.

So since it was expected today, until further notice, we will declare it the New Moon!

From Nehemia: After a flurry of post-Shabbat phone calls, we have not found anyone who succeeded in sighting the new moon from Israel on Friday April 8, 2016. Unless we hear otherwise, the moon sighted from Israel on Saturday April 9, 2016 is Chodesh Ha-Aviv, the New Moon of the Aviv, the beginning of the First Hebrew Month.

New Moon NOT sighted today….

Howdy Folks!

The New Moon was NOT seen in Israel today, Friday, April 8th 2016 due to a lot of haze in the sky. Sighting conditions should have been clear, but because of the haze, reports from observers have been sent from several places saying no one has been able to sight it yet.

Rosh Quodesh/ New Moon will begin Saturday, April 9th at Sunset going through Sunday, April 10th. This will be the first day for the first month!

This means that the 14th day of the first month will begin at sunset on Friday, April 22 and go through Saturday April 23rd at sunset. The Days of Unleavened Bread will begin Saturday evening April 23, 2016 – Saturday, April 30th.

New Year Not Sightedimage above is of the sun setting over Jerusalem, partially obscured by haze, on April 8, 2016.

Have a blessed and Happy New Year!
