    How much time do you have to spot the moon before the default day of 9/22 we be set?

  1. What time will the sighting of the 7th new moon be announced on Thursday?

    1. We will post as soon as we get the reports from Israel. It should be around 2 to 3 PM EST give or take…

      1. Thank you so much

  2. I am hoping this month only lasts 29 days so that the 2 day Feast of Trumpets can be completed on the 23rd! Youtube this!

    Are the expected feast days still the same? i.e. October 6 – 12th and the Last Great Day October 13.

  3. Thank you.

    Hi, does this mean we celebrate Rosh Chodesh today (Wednesday) or tomorrow? Thanks.

    1. It is kept starting at sunset the day it is sighted through the next day at sunset!
