New Moon Days 2023
All New Moons are calculated from the location of Jerusalem per the instructions from Isaiah 2:3, “…for out of Zion will the law go forth, and the word of Yahweh from Jerusalem.”
• Days begin at sunset on the first date with gray background.
Criteria for New Moons
• If the conjunction of the sun and moon occurs between sunset and sunrise, the nighttime portion of the 24-hour day, this would indicate that the conjunction occurred within the last day of the month. Therefore the next sunset would mark the beginning of a new month (moon).
• If the conjunction of the sun and moon occurs between sunrise and sunset, the daylight portion of the 24-hour day, the next sunset would mark the beginning of the last day of the month. Therefore the beginning of the new month (moon) would occur at the second sunset after the conjunction.
For more information regarding New Moons and the New Year see:
Also see The Festivals and Sacred Days of Yahweh.
Special Note: All dates, including the weekly Sabbath, will be one day earlier in the regions of Hawaii, Bora Bora, Tahiti, etc. Refer to the following:
Days begin on the first date at sundown and end on the second date at sundown. Dates and days marked in red indicate the daylight portion of the 24-hour day.
