The renewed moon was NOT seen in Israel today.

Therefore, the start of the 7th biblical month (Tishri) will begin at SUNSET TOMORROW, Tuesday, September 11, 2018.

This also means that sunset TOMORROW marks the start of Yom Teruah, which ends at sunset Wednesday, September 12.  The remainder of the fall feast “high holy days” (i.e., special sabbaths) are as follows:

  • Yom Kippur (Day of Atonement) – sunset Sept 21
  • Sukkot – Day 1 (Feast of Tabernacles) – sunset Sept 26
  • Shemini Atzeret (8th Day of Assembly) – sunset Oct 3

Special thanks to Devorah Gordon and her team for their efforts to spot the new moon in Israel.
