¿Conoces el Calendario Universal?

El Calendario Universal o Hebreo es un calendario lunar que divide el tiempo de acuerdo a los ciclos de la luna. Para ver qué significa esto debemos observar la luna. Algunas noches la luna está completamente llena y otras noches es sólo una una pequeña franja en el cielo nocturno.Se trata de una luna nueva. El tiempo transcurrido desde la luna nueva a la luna llena es un ciclo. Se tarda 29 o 30 días para completar un ciclo.

 

El calendario es ajustado, porque un año solar tiene 365 días y un año lunar de 12 meses es de 354 días. Con el fin de ayudarnos a alcanzar a un mes adicional, se añade en algunos años, este es un año bisiesto. Cada 19 años hay siete años bisiestos (el tercero, sexto, octavo, undécimo, decimocuarto, decimoséptimo y decimonoveno año). En un año bisiesto un mes 13 se añade llamado Adar Sheni (el segundo Adar).

El dia comienza con la caida del sol. La semana comienza el dia llamado domingo.

Hebrew (Jewish) Calendar Hebrew Calendar  (Hebrew)
   
The Hebrew (Jewish) calendar is a lunar calendar that is adjusted. It divides time according to the cycles of the moon. To understand what that means you need to become a moon watcher. Some nights the moon is full and round and on other nights it is just a tiny sliver in the night sky. This is a new moon. The time from the new moon to the full moon is a cycle.It takes 29 or 30 days to complete a cycle. From the new moon called Hodesh in Hebrew. Hodesh is also the word for month. Twelve of these are a Shana or year.

Phases of the Moon  to watch for during the Hebrew (Jewish) Month
The calendar is adjusted because a solar year is 365 days long and a moon year of 12 months is 354 days. In order to help us catch up an extra month is added on certain years, this is a leap year. Every 19 years there are seven leap years (the third, sixth, eighth, eleventh, fourteenth, seventeenth and nineteenth years). In a leap year a 13th month is added called Adar Sheni (the second Adar).

Calculation for  finding the Hebrew (Jewish) Year

The Jewish Day  starts at sundown and ends at sundown A Jewish day starts at sundown and ends at sundown. This is why holidays start “the day before” (sundown). An example of this is Yom Kippur which happens on the 10th of Tishrei – At sundown on the 9th of Tishrei the day changes to the 10th.
The Jewish week begins on Sunday (Yom Rishon – First day) and ends on Shabbat. The Jewish month begins with Rosh Hodesh.See our Prepetual Jewish Calendarwith the Hebrew months, dates and holidays.
