The Jewish Calendar
Since Biblical times the months and years of the Jewish calendar have been established by the cycles of the moon and the sun.
The Jewish calendar date begins at sundown of the night beforehand. Thus all holidays observances begin the night before the dates listed. The exception to this rule is fast days, which begin at dawn of the date shown below (aside for Tisha b’Av and Yom Kippur which also begin the night before). Jewish calendar dates conclude at nightfall.
