The Hebrew Calendar





Information


The Hebrew or Jewish calendar is a lunisolar calendar. It has 355 days based on the lunar calendar with intercalary days during leap years to keep the special days in sync with the seasons, following the solar year. This way, Passover is always celebrated in the spring and Hanukkah in the winter. The beginning of the year is generally in or around September.


The calendar follows the biblical narrative and dates the current year to the beginning of creation. The year beginning in Sept 2022 is year 5783 A.M. (Anno Mundi, the year of the world). In the B.C./A.D. system, the beginning of creation would have been in year 3761 B.C.
