Jewish Calendar

A lunar calendar with dates known for centuries ahead. Years begin in principle with the day following a mean (but very accurate over the long term) new moon, but are often delayed by a day or two so as to avoid beginning on certain days of the week. An extra month is added in seven out of every nineteen years, to keep the months roughly in line with the seasons. Unfortunately, over the long term, this adjustment isn’t accurate, and the New Year will gradually happen later and later, relative to the equinox. Days begin at sunset, on the evening before the Gregorian date given, so that the date shown is that of the daytime period. The holy day is Saturday.
