The Jewish Calendar Headquarters: Why Do Jewish Holidays Come on Different Secular Dates Each Year?
Welcome to the Jewish Calendar Headquarters
The Jewish Calendar
This is a group for lenses about the Jewish Calendar and Jewish holidays and observances.
If you have written any hubs about Jewish holidays or observances or if you wrote any lenses about the Jewish year (months, for example), let me know by leaving a comment and I'll check out your lens and see if it's appropriate for this lens.
See some of the hubs in this Group
- The Jewish Calendar
Why do Jewish holidays come out on different dates each year? Read why here.
- Tishrei: The Month of (Jewish) Holidays and Heshvan: No Holidays
Two of the months of the Jewish year, Tishrei and Heshvan, come in last summer and early fall. One has lots of holidays; one has none. Read more about them here.
- The Jewish Months of Summer: Sivan and Tamuz
Two of the months of the Jewish year, Sivan and Tammuz, come in last spring and early summer. Read more about them here.
The Jewish Calendar
The Jewish year is very different from the secular year
Lunar vs. Solar, Leap Month vs. Leap Day, 5774 vs. 2014, Holidays and Observances that are religious vs. Holidays and Observances that are secular -- these are just some of the differences between the secular calendar and the Jewish calendar. To truly understand the Jewish holidays, you must endeavor to understand the Jewish Calendar.
