Aviv in 2024

This biblical year will have a 13th month which generally happens every three years. The Aviv moon will likely be on 11 March based on the estimation of new moon visibility and the likelihood of barley being Aviv. There is a possibility that Aviv will not be ripe enough resulting in Aviv being on 9 April. There have been several years where Barley was in Aviv around the 11th of March so it all depends on יהוה as all things do so please consider this possibility if you use barley in Aviv.

May יהוה be with you,

Ya’aqov Meyer
