Rosh HaShanah (new year) has arrived here in Wyoming. The new month is Chodesh Abib. It’s been cloudy today, but we had less than a minute to snap a picture of the new moon.
The early Israelites determined a new month, not by astronomical calculations, but by sighting the new moon when the first sliver of the crescent was observed.
Blow the trumpet in the new moon… (Ps. 81:3)
