"Also in the day of your gladness, and in your solemn *days, and in the beginnings of your *months..." (Numbers 10:10)

*mô‛êd    mô‛êd    mô‛âdâh-From H3259; properly an appointment, that is, a fixed time or season; specifically a festival; conventionally a year;

*chôdesh-From H2318; the new moon; by implication a month: - month (-ly), new moon.

The projected dates below are based on approximate calculations of the first new moon visibility as seen from Palestine/Jerusalem.

All listed dates should be confirmed by report of actual new moon visibility.

Note: Biblical Days begin at Sunset. Therefore, a Holy Day begins at Sunset of the day listed. For example, a Holy Day that is on Wednesday is observed from Sunset Tuesday to Sunset Wednesday. 
The sighting of the new moon on or after the spring equinox determines the beginning of the 1st month.  The new moon is not visible for approximately two days/nights.

*The Passover service itself is held just after Sunset (evening before) Marking the start of Passover.

Equinoxes for Jerusalem 2023-2031


There are two equinoxes every year, in March and September, when the Sun shines directly on the equator, and the length of night and day are nearly equal.

The March equinox Marks the moment the Sun crosses the celestial equator – the imaginary line in the sky above the Earth’s equator – from south to north and vice versa in September.

All times are local time for Jerusalem. Dates are based on the Gregorian calendar. Times adjusted for DST if applicable.
