As Rosh Chodesh (the first day of the month) begins the evening the new moon is sighted, the first day of this month is from sunset December 8, 2018 – sunset December 9, 2018. Be sure to keep track of what number month this is, based on when you started the new year.

Chodesh Tov! Make it a great month!
