New Moon Report
Fifth Biblical Month
On Monday August 1, 2011 the new moon was sighted from Israel.
The moon was first sighted:
*from Jerusalem by Yoel Halevi at 7:38pm and shortly thereafter
by Nehemia Gordon and Devorah Gordon;
*from elsewhere in Jerusalem by David Cachicas, Gabriel
Cachicas, and Daniela Cachicas at 7:40pm;
*from Ariel by Frank Mecklenburg and Charlotte Mecklenburg at
*from Haifa by Aaron Amihud at 8:06pm.
It was impossible to sight the new moon from Israel on the
previous evening, July 31, 2011.
I posted my photos of the new moon taken from Jerusalem at:
Rosh Chodesh Samaech!
Happy New Moon!
