The Hebrew Calendar – Parts 1 and 2

In these audio recordings, Rabbi Yosef Eisen, author of The Miraculous Journey, explains the lunar-based Hebrew Calendar, which is synchronized in 19-year cycles with the solar calendar. There are 7 leap years in each 19-year cycle. In a leap year (as this year of 5784), the added leap-month is Adar I.

The first month in the Hebrew calendar is Nissan, which begins in April or the end of March. Passover begins in the evening of the 15th of Nissan. Nevertheless, the New Year’s day for the counting of the years is on Rosh HaShanah, which is the first day of the month of Tishrei (the seventh month in the Hebrew calendar). That is the day that Adam and Hava (Eve) were created by G-d.
