Criteria for New Moons

The following is the criteria (utilized by Qadesh La Yahweh Press) for determining the beginning of a new month (moon).

  • If the conjunction of the sun and moon occurs between sunset and sunrise, the night portion of the 24-hour day, this would indicate that the conjunction occurred within the last day of the month. Therefore the next sunset would mark the beginning of a new month (moon).

  • On the other hand, if the conjunction of the sun and moon occurs between sunrise and sunset, the daylight portion of the 24-hour day, the next sunset would mark the beginning of the last day of the month (moon). Therefore the beginning of the new month (moon) would occur at the second sunset.

    For more information see Rules for the New Moon and The Beginning of the Year

    Footnotes

    1 - The scriptural new year begins with the new moon of Abib from Jerusalem as stated in Isaiah 2:3, "...for out of Zion will the law go forth, and the word of Yahweh from Jerusalem." The new moon can be predetermined as per examples in 1 Sam., 20:5 & 18. Days are reckoned as beginning on the first date at sundown and ending on the second date at sundown. Abib 1 is the beginning of year 22 of the 70th Jubilee cycle calculated from the time that the Israelites observed the first Jubilee cycle in 1386/85 B.C.E. in the land of Kaanan. The Exodus occurred in 1439/1438 B.C.E. For more information regarding the Jubilee cycle please refer to our publication: The Sabbath and Jubilee Cycle.
