New Moon Report
May 2011
Second Biblical Month (correction)

Tonight (Wednesday May 4, 2011) was actually the 31st evening since the previous sighting making it new moon day by default, even if we did not succeed in sighting the moon. On the previous evening sighting would have been impossible from Israel even under ideal conditions. That makes tonight the beginning of the 2nd biblical month. Sorry for the confusion.
