Holy Days Calendar 2023 -2031



"Also in the day of your gladness, and in your solemn *days, and in the beginnings of your *months..." (Numbers 10:10)

*mô‛êd    mô‛êd    mô‛âdâh-From H3259; properly an appointment, that is, a fixed time or season; specifically a festival; conventionally a year;

*chôdesh-From H2318; the new moon; by implication a month: - month (-ly), new moon.

The projected dates below are based on approximate calculations of the first new moon visibility as seen from Palestine/Jerusalem.

All listed dates should be confirmed by report of actual new moon visibility.

Note: Biblical Days begin at Sunset. Therefore, a Holy Day begins at Sunset of the day listed. For example, a Holy Day that is on Wednesday is observed from Sunset Tuesday to Sunset Wednesday. 
The sighting of the new moon on or after the spring equinox determines the beginning of the 1st month.  The new moon is not visible for approximately two days/nights.

*The Passover service itself is held just after Sunset (evening before) Marking the start of Passover.

The projected dates below are based on approximate calculations of the first new moon visibility, at Jerusalem. All listed dates should be confirmed by report of actual new moon visibility.

     NOTE that all Holy Days begin the evening before

* The Passover service itself is held just after Sunset the evening before.
* * The first and last day is a Sabbath

The New Moon sightings from Israel thanks to Devorah's Date Tree.

I encourage you to do your own Bible study and come to your own conclusion as to the start of the new year.

The following are the possible High Holy dates.
There is always 2-3 day period, depending on the weather, of the new moons visibility. And if not sighted by the third day, the third day is considered as the start of the new moon.

  • Unleavened Bread: In the 15th day of the 1st month. It commemorates the Exodus from Egypt in haste, and one must eat the bread of affliction (unleavened) for seven days, from the 15th day of the month through the 21st day of the month. Only the 1st day and the 7th day are High Sabbaths.
  • Feast of Firstfruits: Though it is not a Sabbath, it occurs during the first day of Unleavened which is a Sabbath, and is required in determining the feast of weeks. 
  • Feast of First Weeks: Count seven Sabbaths plus one day from the day after the Sabbath that occurs during Passover / Unleavened Bread. It always lands on a Sunday. It is a celebration of the harvest. It is a High Sabbath.
  • Feast of Trumpets: On the 1st day of the 7th month. It is memorial to the day in which God descended upon the earth to be with, and to speak with his people. We are commanded to have a memorial by blowing trumpets. It is a Holy Day or High Sabbath.

Equinoxes for Jerusalem 2023-2031


There are two equinoxes every year, in March and September, when the Sun shines directly on the equator, and the length of night and day are nearly equal.

The March equinox Marks the moment the Sun crosses the celestial equator – the imaginary line in the sky above the Earth’s equator – from south to north and vice versa in September.

All times are local time for Jerusalem. Dates are based on the Gregorian calendar. Times adjusted for DST if applicable.
