    dear brother
    will you be so kind to always write the date when the moon was sighted cause when you just say today the new moon was sighted it can be that the em was not received in time and then it is confusing as when the exact day was.
    appreciated your help in this.
    thanks and shalom

    1. Sure thing brother. I do keep it as an important priority to put the date in the post, and it looks as though I did here as well. If I miss it again, please do let me know! Blessings and Shalom!

    Has the New Moon been sighted today?

    1. I am not sure if it has been sighted, as my resources have stopped sharing. I am working on contacting more folks.

      BUT, by default, we have completed 30 days and so this evening begins the New Month.

    Thank you, Brother Mark. I have come to rely on you eye-witness reports. Because the time is an absolute time, I do not start my observance until I am told it was sighted and that the High Holy Sabbath is tomorrow. To me a day early is worthless. A day late may count since it was not sighted within the expected time.

    Anyway, I am relieved and can now be in compliance with a “for ever commandment to observe this specific time.”

    Thank you.

    Yom Teruah is always a 2-day holiday, Mark!

    1. In my understanding it is only two days when the Moon is sighted a day late. As I understqand and practice, You prepare for the earliest day and celebrate as if it is Yom Teruah as the first day and then if it’s not sighted, you would keep the next day as well. If it is, it is only that day – 1 day. In the scriptures, in Leviticus, it is only commanded as a 1 day Holy Day! I beleive that is a tradition maybe added later? (see Leviticus 23: 23-25)
