    Shalom Mark, thank you so for posting these sightings. To me this is the 7th month, based on the new moon earlier this year., the equinox and the barley. Please keep up the great work.

  1. H I pray The Spirit Will bring us all into that one truth. Your dates for the later Feasts determined by the Spring Equinox square up with Genesis 1:14. Seems a secondary issue whether the crops are ready or not since there is no precedent for Aviv search in Scripture. in 2018 we kept the early feast with a group we really liked but the theme was about housekeeping instead of the theme of first and second coming and Sukkot. this calendar is not a peripheral issue”Aviv calendar, HilleL II” etc. but we love our sisters and brothers whether or not they have arrived at different conclusions. Main thing is not truth only but also not having pride and arrogance in regards to others, leaving space for others to be convinced and convicted.

    I’m not sure if my comment went through..

    Does Kippur start Friday night with the weekly Sabbath or is Saturday night right after the weekly Sabbath?

    Blessed are the people Who know the festal trumpet-call! They walk, O יהוה, in the light of Your face.
    In Your Name they rejoice all day long, And they are exalted in Your righteousness. (Psalms 98:15-16)
