DESCRIPTION:

The Jewish Year 5785 

corresponds to the years 2024 and 2025 in the Gregorian calendar. 


The Hebrew calendar, integral to Jewish tradition, is a lunisolar calendar for determining Jewish holidays, religious observances, and Torah readings. It dates back to ancient times and is deeply rooted in biblical and rabbinic traditions.

The year in the Hebrew calendar begins in the autumn with the month of Tishrei, during which some of the most important Jewish holidays occur, such as Rosh Hashanah (the Jewish New Year) and Yom Kippur (the Day of Atonement). A Hebrew year typically has 12 months. However, due to the discrepancy between the lunar cycle (354 days) and the solar year (365 days), an extra month, Adar II, is added approximately every three years. This intercalation ensures that festivals tied to seasons occur at their seasonally appropriate times.

The months of the Hebrew calendar are: 

  1. Tishrei
  2. Cheshvan 
  3. Kislev
  4. Tevet
  5. Shevat 
  6. Adar (and Adar II in Jewish leap years) 
  7. Nisan 
  8. Iyar
  9. Sivan
  10. Tammuz
  11. Av
  12. Elul

The length of these months can vary, and the calendar includes complex rules for determining the precise length of each month and year. The calendar is utilized in Israel for civil purposes alongside the Gregorian calendar.
