Rosh HaShanah and Yom Kippur
#4
Dr. Michael,

The book of Jubilees, although non-canonical, seems to put down a more ancient Noahide code than that expressed in the Talmud. The community at the Dead Sea studied Jubilees.

The code in the book of Jubilees advocates keeping the four new moon celebrations in the year immediately following the solstices and equinoxes, (which commemorate the four major points of the Flood narrative.)

Since new moon celebrations are not new holidays but are ancient ones, is there anything wrong with dedicating four new moons a year to commerate the Flood? or to celebrate the passing of seasons?

G-d bless,
Brian
