CURRENT MOON

"...at the beginning of your renewed moons*, you shall blow the trumpets" - Numbers 10:10
*Orig. month; "New moon" & "month" are cognates of Hebrew word Chodesh or Hadesekem (Strong's 2320) derived from Chadash (Strong's 2318) meaning "renew"

New Moon Crescent:

The best conditions for first seeing the fourth new moon of the Aviv barley will likely take place in Australia on Saturday evening, June 28th. Israel-based observers will have a slim chance of seeing the crescent with the naked eye, but it is possible they will delay their new month until the following evening.

Expected Observation Dates of Biblical Festivals 2014:
All dates may vary based upon actual visual confirmation/trumpet call of the new crescent moon & availability of Aviv barley within the region of the Promised Land

For 2014, the Aviv barley searches in the Fertile Crescent found no positive conclusions until prior to the new moon of March 31st, first reported from Israel. Therefore, the Annual Festival Dates were as follows (all days begin at sundown the evening before date posted):

^ - Regions east of Israel will observe the following date (based on global trumpet call)
# Based on barley within Promised Land (Israel) region
* High Day of Convocation (no regular work)

The Seventh New Moon of 2014 will first be seen on Thursday evening, September 25th with first sightings around Australia. This new moon will mark the arrival of the Fall Festivals on the following dates for all locations worldwide. There is a possibility, however, that those following the restrictive Israel-based observation calendar method will be delayed by one additional day depending on sighting conditions. Dates listed below are based on a Global Trumpet Call (all days begin at sundown the evening before date posted):

^ - Dates based on a global trumpet call (Israel-based observers will likely keep the following date)
* High Day of Convocation (no regular work)



If you would like to provide future reports, I welcome anyone to serve as witnesses to the sighting of the new moon crescent by submitting your sighting via e-mail. Together, as Yah's people, we can all be of one accord with the blowing of a trumpet to communicate to all of His people when the new moon has occurred (Numbers 10:10). We also attempt to post our own sightings and in a timely manner.
