So, some, like the CCOG, are saying tonight (April 14th) is the Passover, but because the New Moon was on Sunday, then that day is Passover? And, the week beginning Monday is the “Night to be remembered”, and the week of unleavened bread? May I ask, why isn’t the sight ever really updated?
Hi family! Do we know when Passover starts? I’m doing my own reading too-but I know how important it is to get right.
When will you be putting up the Feast dates for 2022.
Thank you for all you hard work.
Bro. Mark, please share your rationale for using the equinox to mark the calendar for 2021. Thank you.
How could the Feast of Trumpets be on September 19 when that is not on the new moon??? Thank you
Your message is dated 2020. You mean 2021, right? Thank you.
You indicate that Passover will be on April 8th (at twilight) is that at twilight on the actual date of the 8th or is that twilight on the actual date of the 7th. I know that God’s time is from sunset to sunset but it is confusing to me as to which actual calendar day I should be having Passover. Please let me know. Thank you,
At twilight on the 8th.
New Moon marking the 1st day of Aviv was tonight March 25th in Israel, Passover is on the 14th day at twilight that would be April 7th? ??
April 8th. The first day was the dat of the 26th, so count 14 from there. You get to the 8th.
From March 25th plus 14 days brings us to April 7th. So why do you start Passover 15 days after the New Moon instead of 14 as scripture states?
It was sighted the 25th, the first day was the 26th.
My husband has to request vacation time for 2020 in November of 2019. We would love to celebrate feasts, especially Passover/Unleavened Bread and Feast of Tabernacles, as a family since he gets 2 weeks vacation. I know you cant say with certainty without actual moon sighting but are you able to give me an approximate eatimate of dates to help complete this request?
Also, please add me to your email list. Thank you! Shonya
Yes, I will be updating the expected Feast Dates page for 2020 here soon.
I’ll also add you to my email list!
Why do I no longer receive a monthly email notification of when the new moon is sighted ?
I would like to know as well.
Shalom, concerning the dates that you have for the Feast of Tabernacles, you have October 14th-20th which is only six days (it should be seven). So, it should be the 14th-21st and the Last Great Day the 22nd.
Thank you so much for letting us know! Depending on when the moon is sighted, will determine the first first day which is actually the 13th or the 14th making the last day the 21st or the 22nd. I will fix that! Thank you again!
Why is everyone saying June 9 is Pentecost when your date is a week later?
Shalom Pam, Please see my post here: http://whenisthenewmoon.com/pentecost-the-feast-of-weeks-shavuot/
Shalom Pam, Please see my latest post on this!
Shavuot , será Agora 09/ junho ou 16 / junho estou confuso , alguém poderia me atualizar obrigado
Please read my last post answering this question.
Shalom Mark, you say Pentecost is the 16th of June can you plz explain how you count the fifty days in order to her that date
Janet, Please see my post here: http://whenisthenewmoon.com/pentecost-the-feast-of-weeks-shavuot/
I’m confused. You say that Passover is the evening of the 21st, the 14th day, but you also state that the feast days start the night before at sunset. So when is the Passover meal? After sunset on the 20th or after sunset on the 21st?
Passover is at twilight on the 14th day of the first month (Leviticus 23:5) which falls on the roman calendar on Sunday, April the 21st. After the sun sets, according to the Hebrew day, it will then be the 15th day of the first month which begins the high day, the first day of unleavened bread. So, Passover meal (the night to be remembered) is kept Sunday evening. I hope that makes it clear for you! 🙂 Have a blessed Passover!
please add me to your email list
Please add me to your email list,
Are you planning on updating this page for 2019?
Thank you so much, Mark, for the help you give from your website. My family and I very much appreciate it!
Shalom Mark, I’m so glad I found someone else who is going by the leap year!
I’m having a difficult time counting from the evening, beginning the day, so when you wrote Yom Teruah is October 11th, did you mean the evening of October 10th?
It doesn’t take much to confuse me, because Yom Kippurim says October 20th, does that mean at sundown the 21st?
Yes, all holydays listed start the evening before! You are correct! Shalom to you as well! 🙂
So with the latest New Moon sighting, what will the final dates be for Atonment/Yom Kippurim, Feast of Trumpets etc?
This would be when we expect them!
Trumpets/Yom Teruah: Thursday, October 11th
Atonment/Yom Kippurim: Saturday, October 20th
Tabernacles/Sukkot: Thursday, October 25th – Wednesday, October 31st
Last Great Day of the Feast: Thursday, November 1st
So would that make Yom Kippurim from Friday 19th Sunset – to – Saturday 20th Sunset ?
Will you let us know if this changes?
so now Kippur is from Saturday 20th sunset to Sunday 21st sunset, right?
No, it will begin Friday night and all day Saturday!
thank you Mark 🙂
I must be very dense. If Pentecost will begin on the 24th of June 2018, doesn’t that mean it begins at sunset the previous evening?
Of course I then have the confusion of figuring out Jetusalem vs Chicago time.
Please list specifically time and date Pentecost 2018 begins and ends.
Thanks very much. I found 2other sites with endless explanations on WHY Pentecost is later than all the “official” denominations say it is, but they’re not saying when it is! I just need the nuts and bolts chart, not the owner’s manual (math is not my subject). Please help!
P.S. it would be great if you would run through the names of all 12 months in sequence, with holidays. Nobody ever seems to do that, either, except the official Judaism sites, and seemingly they are all off. Thanks very much in advance.
Yes, you are correct! Pentecost begins at sunset on Saturday!
I put the times in the most recent New Moon report post.
Alright, great idea! I will put it on my list to do a quick, east and simple run-down video of the months and feast days accordingly!
Blessings to you! 🙂
WHOOPS I did not read your disclaimer about the dates being projected (which I know that)…your projections are slightly different but I am sure will line UP…I am going to go ahead and share your Video THANK you for taking the time to doing this…it was MUCH needed…Tamar
your Feast dates are not lining up with Congregation of Yahweh Panama City….Please check this AS I cannot share a much needed video…thank YOU
Doesn’t your projected date for Tabernacles seem far past being late?
The BIBLICAL CALENDAR is counted from the FIRST new moon of spring — so Tabernacles will be in OCTOBER this year — not September.
Really enjoyed your 12 minute video on the Creator’s Calendar, and now I have a question of interpreting the Spring Equinox for 2018.
In your video you mention the Intl date line should be relative to Jerusalem; I agree. What I don’t understand is the days and nights were equal with 1 minute less night on 3/17/18 Jerusalem time (timeanddate.com). This would seem to be the best day for the Spring Equinox (relative to Jerusalem time), but instead it was calculated to be 3/20/18. Obviously, if true equinox is on 3/17/18 (Jerusalem time) and new moon sighting was sunset 3/18, then Nissan 1 begins first full day 3/19/18, and not deferred until April new moon. Therefore, it’s critical to understand why 3/20 is used and not 3/17 for Spring Equinox since Jerusalem is our reference. Can you shed some light on this?
Thank you for your question, I will be covering this in the video! 🙂
Thank you, Bro. Mark. Someone had to do it. It’s so comforting to have this projection. Again, thank you very much.
I think your dates for 2018 are wrong. April 18th is not a new moon, therefore it cannot be a new moon day. The new moon will be on the 16th of April.
Hi Matthew, The first possible sighting will be April 17th…making that evening through the 18th the New Moon day. If the sighting is different, I will be updating the exact feast dates as I know. I am not sure where you get that it will be the 16th?
Perhaps Matthew doesn’t realise that there is an astronomical new moon (the conjunction) and the new moon sliver sighting.
Going by the U.S. Naval Observatory, Astronomical Applications Department the astronomical new moon is on the 16th April.
Phase of the Moon , for Israel will be on April 17, 2018: Waxing Crescent with 2% of the Moon’s visible disk illuminated
Therefore should be easily sighted if conditions are clear.
Just thought I would add our little bit.
By the way thank you for your information supplied already.
New moon was seen April 17… Tonight is Pesach, Chag Sameach Y’all!
I love this site! Thank you so much.
Shalom! We will celebrate Passover and Unleavened Bread on McKenzie River this year. Thus far, Jean and myself TsephanYah present ready for the mountain cabin. The Tabernacle has dual fireplaces, an old fashioned motif and wood stove in the adjacent kitchen. About $20 per night. Maybe put the Feast YEAR, as the one I’m looking at the top, seems to be 2017. Would love to someday join your group for Sukkot as well, But our Mid Willamette Valley fellowship seems to be blessed presently. Move-up to Higher Ground with our heavenly Father. Shalom.
Thank you for all the work you do keeping up informed about the new moon sightings. I/we appreciate it very much. May I ask when you will be posting the expected dates of the Feasts for 2018. I realize that they may differ from what you post but a general idea would certainly be helpful. If you have decided not to post expected dates, would you please let me/us know so that I can find out somewhere else.
Thank you for your early response
Yes, I plan to get the Next year’s Feast Dates published soon! 🙂
Jesus tells us that He prays that our flight will not be on the Sabbath when we see the tribulation abomination, Matthew 24 vs 20, even He thinks that we will be worshiping on the seventh day the Sabbath and that refers to the end times that have not fully come yet.
How do we acknowledge AHBA YAHUAH’S appointed days
Are these dates for 2017? If so, April 12th is not a Thursday, it is a Wednesday. So does Passover start on Wednesday 12th or Thursday, 13th?
It is Wednesday, the 12th.
just to confirm…. passover was at sunset on the 12th of april? is the dates for south africa the same?
ok please scrath that question. just watched your video “the creator’s calendar”. i understand now that the first day of the month starts ON the day the new moon was sighted. thank you & shalom
Hallo, weiß jemand ob sie Gerste schon den Aviv Zustand hat für das Jahr 2017? Der Neumond wird ja nächste Woche gesichtet.
Since Weds Sept 16th evening would make the previous month to be 31 days, I assume you are considering the evening (night) of Sept 15th to be the beginning of the 1st day of the seventh month and sunset of the 16th to be the conclusion of that day. Is that correct?
That would be correct.
Thank you, I am looking for a listing of the holy days for this year 2015 to be
used for the observance of each holy day… and to learn how to find the moon
phase myself also. Thx so much, Janice and Joe
