Shalom everyone! The following is a link to an article titled “Understanding the Hebrew Calendar” by Rabbi Shlomo B. Levy, Dean of the Israelite Academy in New York. The common Hebrew Calendar has always been an issue of controversy in Israelite communities as to whether it is valid because of the timing of new year increments and some of the calendar names. The common Hebrew Calendar is the most authentic, mathematically accurate calendar that is available to us now. Hopefully, this article will put these controversies to rest by detailing the history of the calendar, why the calendar operates the way it does, and the wisdom of the Sages in creating this calendar for all Israel to follow.
Erverh Nation adheres to the common Hebrew Calendar.
