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!

The New Moon was sighted on Tuesday, July 5th, 2016. New moon day will begin at sunset on July 5th through sunset on Wednesday, July 6th.
Have a Very Happy New Moon and a Productive Next Month!
Many blessings in the Name of יהוה!

Mark brother,I have sighted the new moon here in Kenya today around 7pm and set around 7.21pm.
The Creator God requires two witness for something to be established——one man and a camera is still only witness no matter how reliable he is ——-Trust no man——–
Though not in Jerusalem the New Moon has been sighted in Kenya by-
Kariuki M.&Mugambi Gitaari.
It does take 2 witnesses minimum to establish a thing I know it’s being picky but that is scripture
2 Cor. 13:1
It was like only a blessed few were allowed to see it. Consider yourselves special. I didn’t see it the following night either…. 🙁
Shalom Br. Harris,
I too believed the New Moon was sighted today by Dr. Hoffman and decided to celebrate the Rosh Chodesh today.
So “Rosh Chodesh Tov” to you and your family
