    Please add me to your lists. Question: when you say that the moon sliver has to be sighted at the horizon, exactly what do you consider the horizon?
    Thank you .

    1. It just means, that the moon sliver is spotted usually lower in the sky as the sun is setting. At some times of the year, The sliver moon can only be sighted for a small amount of time before setting after the Sun has set making the sliver visible. I hope this makes sense! Shalom

    Thank you for so clearly giving the Biblical truth of when a new month begins. Our group has switched to the biblical calendar (as opposed to the annually published Hebrew calendar) – Praise the Lord, it’s been such a blessing. In our Messianic community, though, there is so much confusion. I stand firm on two things:
    1. God wants His people to be obedient
    2. He made it simple to do so (see a new moon – it’s a new month | sunset to sunset = a full day)

    Shame on man’s logic for trying to make it complicated. May He come soon!

    Blessings from Kansas, USA.

    1. Amen! 🙂

    I thought the Feast lasted two days with the last trump ( Teliah Gadolah ) blown the 2nd day ( 17th). Any thoughts on this being a two day feast? I heard that teaching from Perry Stone.

    1. Scripturally, Yom Teruah is only a 1 day feast as mentioned in Leviticus 23. However, out of the fear of YHWH and being ready for His return, it is traditionally kept 2 days especially out of the uncertainty of the sighting. When the new moon is not sighted on the first possible date, that day as well as the next is then kept, making it a 2 day feast. But, if the moon is sighted the first possible time then it’s only a one day feast. In this case this year, it was kept a 2 days feast, but the true YOM TERUAH as stated in the scriptures was the 16th of September. I hope this helps! Shalom

    1. No, it started on the evening of the 15th through the 16th at evening.

    When does Yom Teruah precisely begin and end in Jerusalem? Thank You so much!

    1. It depends on the group. There is a group of Jewish people that keep a calculated calendar, and then there are groups that keep the biblical calendar based on the sighting of the New Moon. IN this case, We keep the biblical calendar based on the sightings. The moon was sighted on the 15th, therefore biblically Yom Teruah started at sunset on September 15th 2015 and went through September, 16th 2015.

    So since the moon was seen tonight (15th)
    Is the first day counted today (15th) — or is the first day (Wed. 16th)….

    It seems to me, it would be the 16th (since the new day starts at sunset).
    If correct, that makes the 17th the second day…..

    Sorry, very confusing of whether the seeing of the new moon is the first day.

    1. The First day is the 16th. When the NEW Moon Is Sighted, that evening through the next day at evening is the first day. Because you cannot sight it till the evening, and that next day that follows is the first day of the Month.

    I live in Illinois, USA (Central Time Zone). When was this picture taken and when does the Yom Teruah begin and end in my time zone? Thank You!

    1. The Holy day is kept starting the same evening after the moon is sighted as it comes to you. So since it was sighted today September 15th you will keep the Holy Day starting as the sun set for you. The Holy day goes through all day Wednesday till sunset. I hope this makes it clear for you! Shalom

        I myself did not see the new moon last night, clouds preventing any possibility, but others did in the usa, according to a post on NG facebook page in comments.

        Did it start Then or Now ? without worldwide communications, how would you know?
