Preparing the Way of the Lord

Holy Day Dates

Holy Day Dates:  This calendar is based on the Biblical system of observing the first light of the new moon at Jerusalem. 

Potential cloud cover may interfere with visibility and delay dates by one day, therefore whenever possible these calculated dates should be confirmed by actual observation at Jerusalem.  We will announce New Moon sightings at this site.

For more information please see the Biblical Calendar posts.

All days begin at sunset the previous calendar day.

After the difficult 2018 moon sightings, all sightings through 2027 are firm, unless there is heavy cloud cover.
