New Moon Sightings & Feasts in Israel 2021

New Moon Sightings in Israel & Feast Dates 2021.

Scripture holds no formal, technical study manual on ‘how to’ figure out the calendar, such as the Feast dates (the Appointed Times), the New Moon Sightings in Israel, the start of the Hebrew Months, or When to Add an Extra Month (intercalate). But . . . . scripture does provide the starting points necessary and when used in combination with other scientific facts and data will produce a correct Biblical calendar, with confirming waypoints which align with secular historical events, new moon sightings and the correct appointed dates. (c.f. www.TorahTimes.org by Daniel Gregg)

renewed crescent moon sightingsThe New Moon Sighting Criteria.

Let there be lights (plural). Genesis 1:14. Then the Almĭghty said, “Let there be lights in the expanse of the heavens, to make a division between the day and between the night. And they will have been for signs, and for appointed times, and for days and years. Following a few simple steps will provide the New Moon Sightings in Israel for 2021.

Here, we are told that two great lights are to be for signs and for the appointed times, the sun and the moon. Scripture often satisfies a technical goal in simple terms and without technical language, which the typical, average reader will just skip right and miss these kinds of details.

But the reader who diligently, ponders the matter and realises the requirements that need to be clarified reads the text and does not miss the detail that makes things plain. It says, “And let them be for signs,” which are the lights.

The important point here is that it is the light that makes the sign. In the case of the moon it has to receive light from the sun, which in turn has to be reflected to earth so that it becomes visible. It is the return of visible light to the moon by which it marks the night heading up the first day of the month. 

Psalm 90:12
So teach us to number our days, that we may apply our hearts unto wisdom.

New Moons do not start when in Conjunction.

Then David said unto Jonathan, “Behold, tomorrow is the new moon, and sitting I should sit with the king to eat” (1 Sam. 20:5). This text is an often cited by many such as 119 Ministries and the Rabbinical Tradition as “proof text” for keeping the Scripture feast days according to the timing of the lunar conjunction.

Why Observe the Feasts?

The feast days are part of God’s Law (instruction). Yeshua said He did not come to abolish the Law (nomos) or the Prophets (Matthew 5:17-20), and he reinforced this teaching by directing His followers to obey the instruction of the Pharisees (Matthew 23:1-3), and by telling them to teach everything He commanded to the nations (Matthew 28:18-20).

Join others worldwide who are beginning to realise that the ancient method of observation to determine the true Biblical calendar, was the one used in Israel during the time of the Tenakh (Old Testament) and also during the time of the Messiah Yeshua.

    A welcoming and fresh looking website with first class resources. Difficult concepts are explained in a comprehensible manner. Spiritually encouraging.

    Does this site actually (from Israel) have people do the new Moon observation to determine the first day of that new month?
    Interculary months are determined by how ripe the abib is to perform the wave sheaf offering if not ripen then the 13th interculary month is added that’s how in intercalary month is determined. So by default you cannot have Passover unless the a bib is ripe enough for the wave sheaf offering that is held the marrow after the first day of the Passover which is the 16th.

      This is correct . . . for the wave sheaf offering that is held the marrow after the first day of the Passover which is the 16th. 

      The determination of an Adar II is tabulated as follows:

      1. The first rule is: “Then you shall have kept this statute (Passover/Unleavens) at its appointed time from days to days (mî-yā-mîm yā-mî-māh)”. (Exodus 13:10).
      2. The second rule is: “Your bounty and your pressings you shall not delay to offer” (Exodus 22:29).
      3. The third rule is, “Three feasts by foot you shall keep for me in the year” (Exodus 23:14).

      One might now ask, how is the year determined then.

      And it was at the time of the return of the year, at the time kings go out
      (1 Chronicles 20:1).

      And it was at the circuit of the year that the army of Aram had gone up against him
      (2 Chronicles 24:23).

      And at the turn of the year Nebuchadnezzar the king had sent for him and brought him to Babylon
      (2 Chronicles 36:10).

      And it was at the turn of the year that Ben Hadad called Aram to attention. Then he went up to Aphaek to battle with Yisrael
      (1 Kings 21:26; cf. 1 Kings 20:22).

      And it was at the circuit of the days; and Hannah conceived, and bore a son
      (1 Samuel 1:20).

      You shall keep the Feast of Unleavened Bread… at the appointed time in the month of Aviv… You shall observe the Feast of Shavuot, the first fruits of the wheat harvest, and the Feast of In-gathering in the cycle of a year
      (Exodus 34:18-22).

      And thou hast kept this statute at its appointed season from days to days
      (Exodus 13:10, Young’s Literal Translation).

      Now we must pay exact attention to the time of the, “return of the year”, which is an exact translation of the Hebrew: הַשָּׁנָ֜ה לְעֵ֣ת תְּשׁוּב(Chronicles 20:1). It is in the springtime. If anyone wishes to argue whether it was spring or not, then 2 Chronicles 36:10, above, settles the matter beyond any legitimate objection.

      The King of Babylon took Jerusalem (in the month of Adar), and he exiled the King the next month, “at the return of the year”.

      Exodus 12

      1 1 Then Yăhwēh said unto Mōshēh and unto A̓harōn in the land of Egypt, saying, 2 “This month for you, is the head of months. It is headmost for you, of the months of the year. †

      It is the headmost, רִאשׁ֥וֹן or the first month of the year. This is the month of A̕v̱i̱v̱ (Nisan). The first day of the month is NOT new year’s day. This is a false doctrine of men. The moon signals the new month, but the sun defines the year. The year begins when the sun completes its cycle and begins it again. This does not happen on the new moon day, because the new moon is when the moon has completed its cycle, and begins it again. How then is the first month to be the first month of the year?

      The first day of the first month of the year hardly ever lands on the new year day, because 12 lunar months do not divide the year equally. It is not called the first month because the new moon comes on the new year day. If this were so, then 12 lunar months would divide the year equally, but it is an astronomical fact that it does not divide the year equally. It is called the first month because it is the first month for which half of the month (or more than half of it) is in the new year, which is to say more precisely, the 16th day and onward has to be in the new year. Sunset at the end of the 15th day has to be in the new year for the month to be the first month. And if the new year begins after sunset at the end of the 15th day of the 13th month, then not enough of that month falls in the new year to name it the first month. It must become Second Adar.

      So to determine the new year day, the sun must be watched to see when it repeats its cycle. If a new moon falls too far before the start of the year, then too much of the month assigned to that moon falls in the old year. And even though some days of that month may fall in the new year, they are not enough to make the month the first month of the year. The key point is that the Second Passover offering must be eaten in the new year, and the eating of this occurs between sunset at the end of Nisan 15 and daybreak on Nisan 16. The commandment is that three times in the year a feast shall be to Yăhwēh. Therefore, this feast must be in the new year, after the end of the days of the old year (cf. Ex. 13:10; Gen. 4:3).

      The Creator is not facetious . from this simple template, we can very accurately determine the year in which the 3 days & 3 nights occurred book marked between the High Sabbath of Passover/Unleavens & The Weekly Sabbath of His Resurrection at dawn.
