I apologize for being so late in getting this report out to all of you…
I have gotten one report that the New Moon was sighted, and I have also gotten a few reports that it was unable to be seen due to cloud cover in Israel. Whether the New Moon was seen in Israel last night or not, yesterday February 17th 2018 was the 30th day of the 11th month, therefor by default today we enter the 12th month!
The New Moon of the 12th month started at sunset, on Saturday, February 17th 2018 and will end at sunset on Sunday, February 18th.
This is known as the 12th Biblical Hebrew Month, also known as (Adar)
Thank you to all the observers who went out to try and find the New Moon last night, and for sending in your reports for those of us who are not in the land of Israel at this time.
Happy New Moon Y’all!
The Next New Moon will determine whether we have a 13th month!
Have a blessed month!

If I count correctly the 30th day will be 19MAR2018. The Equinox is not until the 20th. So it appears we will have a leap year. Or are you using other criteria, or have I misunderstood your methods?
Shalom brother Mark,
Thank you for the report.
I have some questions: why will the next new moon determine whether we have a 13th month?
If there will be a 13th month, won’t that cause a very late passover (too late perhaps?) Should ripe barley not taken into that determination as was the habit in biblical times? Thank you for your answers in advance!
Have a blessed month dear brother, and enjoy your time with our beloved Adon Yeshua, together with your beloved ones. He is thé King of kings! All praises to our Elohim!
Thank you so much for your diligence in an accurate and insightful report. I saw the “sliver” here in Southwest Missouri last evening and assumed weather must have been a factor in Israel.
There is such reassurance in the sighting, knowing that The Creator is keeping time with us.
Thanks again to you and your watchful team.
