Dear Friends,

The new moon was sighted from Israel this evening, Monday, 22 June 2020!

  • From Jerusalem by Devorah Gordon at 8:12pm, followed by Gil Ashendorf.
  • From Kfar Eldad, El David, Nokdim by Bruce Brill at 8:05.
  • From Beer Sheva by Yochanan Zaqantov at 8:15pm and Fabio Yosef at 8:30pm.

This means sunset on 22 June 2020 marks the beginning of the new month.

On behalf of all of us who rely on these observations, we wish to thank everyone in Israel who looked for the new moon this evening and sent in their observations in a timely manner. We are also extremely grateful to everyone who is supporting our efforts from afar, your support helps us be able to collect the observations and share these reports around the world.

The photo at the top of this report was taken from our observation point in Jerusalem this evening.

If reliable first-hand New Moon and Aviv Reports from Israel are of value to you, please consider supporting our efforts. We could really use your support in restoring the Biblical Calendar.

Chodesh Tov! Make it a great month!
