The Jewish Calendar and the Torah

ByJames Shneer

Usually printed in 3 - 5 business days
The Jewish Calendar and the Torah begins with an introduction to calendars in general and then provides an in-depth look at the structure of the Jewish calendar, including the calculation of the Molad of Tishrei, characteristics of the 19 years cycles, conversion from civil calendar to Jewish calendar dates and vice versa, the Jewish calendar drift, the coincidences of Jewish and non-Jewish holidays and much more. The relationship between the calendar and the allocation of Torah parshiot across the 14 different Jewish calendar year configurations is covered in detail. There are 14 appendices including one which describes the characteristics of every Jewish year from 4371 to 6764 (civil years 610 CE - 3003 CE).
