Expected Observation Dates of Biblical Festivals 2015:
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 2015, the Aviv barley searches will begin in mid-March with the first possible new moon of the year expected on Saturday evening, March 21st in New Guinea. Mature Barley is expected to be found at this time making the Annual Festival Dates 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)

This would then make the Seventh New Moon of 2015 expected on Monday evening, September 14th in Australia. This new moon would mark the arrival of the Fall Festivals on the following dates for all locations westward from Australia. 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
* 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.
