Dear Friends,

This means this evening marks the beginning of the new month. Be sure to keep track of what number month this is, based on when you started the new year!

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 quickly and efficiently.

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!

Devorah Gordon
