I don't know. I would think since God uses the
calendar HE set up which uses the sighting of the new moon
to HIM the dates will be the 10th and the 16th. Since the
modern Jews don't follow the system set up for declaring
the new month I am not sure that they are the best source
for reconciling weather the feasts are moved.
post on starting the new month on August 2"
Goodness! Now again a calendar slide.
Paul, you posted the Karaite Korner information on
sighting the new moon for this Biblical
month. They said one could not see the new moon in
Israel on July 31, thus the first
day of the month would be August 2.
Does that mean that other feasts would move, if reckoned
this way? I really don't know,
Does it mean Tisha B'Av would move from August 9 to August
10, and Tu B'Av would
move from August 15 to 16? If Tu B'Av moved to
August 16, it would then be on a Tuesday.
I am not sure this matters in our reckoning of these
festivals--but it might. I am not an expert
on Jewish Biblical calendars. Modern Jews will be
using the Gregorian calendar
and Tisha B'Av will be on August 9 and Tu B'Av on August
15, according to the calendar
someone posted off the Deyo website. The Gregorian
calendar can be found on the Deyo
website if anyone wants to look this up.
Glory to the Lord on every day of the month!
