New Moon Of Aviv Sighted!

On Saturday April 9, 2016 the new moon was sighted from Israel.

Sighted by: Nehemia Gordon, Devorah Gordon, Yoel Halevi, Rebecca Biderman, Bruce Brill and Seth Kaufman.

Time Sighted: 6:46 pm Jerusalem, Israel Time

Month: This is the First Biblical Hebrew Month, also known as Aviv or (Nissan)

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.

Shana Tova!
Happy New Year! :)

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.

Have a blessed and Happy New Year!
