New Moon Sighted In Israel – 6th Biblical Hebrew Month (Elul)

Shalom Brothers and Sisters!
On Wednesday August 27, 2014 the new moon was sighted from Israel!  This starts the 6th month which I like to look at as the preparation month. Just like the 6th day of the week is preparation day for the weekly Sabbath, so is the 6th month Preparation month for the Fall Feast days. Let us all prepare physically and Spiritually for YHWH’s Upcoming Feast days, Yom Teruah (Day of Trumpets), Yom Kippur (day of Atonment) and Sukkot (The Feast of Tabernacles)! We are really excited about these fast approaching Celebrations! If you are in need of a place to keep the week of Sukkot, you are welcome to join us in Texas. Please visit our site for more info:

    Shalom! I have to say that the picture of the New Moon that you have up there is very beautiful!!! How did you get it? I mean, do you have any software to capture the picture of the New Moon on 27th September 2014, or was it just a picture from last year?

    1. It was taken from Israel by Yoel Halevi this year!! =]

    If Yom Teruah begins on the first day if the month and is a day for no work then hiw will we know if the moon was sited because you probably will not send a message.???
    My understanding is the month could be 29 or 30 days long and rarely 30 days according to when the moon is sited???? Please help. I think i have it diwn then get cinfused again.
    Thank you : – )

    1. Yes, I will send a message once the new moon is sighted…The expected date for the Moon to Be sighted in Israel is Thursday Sept. 25….
      If it is not sighted that day, then the next day will be declared Yom Teruah, but we will rest both days to be sure!!! I hope this helps…Shalom!
