Expected Observation-based Dates of Biblical Festivals

     for Gregorian year 2017:

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

Aviv barley searches were held and confirmed mature barley growing in the fields prior to the renewed moon that appeared the evening of March 28th++ in the area of Venezuela making this the first day of the new Biblical year. Listed below are the dates for the Biblical Festivals in 2017 for Venezuela and areas westward:

  • First Day of Biblical Year# (Day 1 of Month 1): March 29th++
  • Passover/Pesach Seder (Day 14 of Month 1): April 11th++ Eucharist is observed on the evening of April 10th++ based on Yeshua’s model
  • First Day of Feast of Unleavened Bread/Chag HaMatzot* (Day 15 of Month 1): April 12th++
  • Wave Sheaf/Omer Day# (1st day of the week during Unleavened Bread in Promised Land): April 16th
  • Last Day of Feast of Unleavened Bread/Chag HaMatzot* (Day 21 of Month 1): April 18th++
  • Counting of Weeks (7 complete weeks starting with Wave Sheaf Day): April 16th – June 3rd
  • Feast of Pentecost/Shavuot * (50th Day starting with Wave Sheaf Day): June 4th

It would then follow that the seventh renewed moon of 2017 is expected to appear on the evening of September 21st in the area of New Guinea. This would mark the arrival of the Fall Festivals on the dates below for this location and areas westward:

  • Day of Trumpets/Yom Teruah* (Day 1 of Month 7): September 22nd
  • Day of Atonement/Yom Kippur* (Day 10 of Month 7): October 1st
  • First Day of Feast of Tabernacles/Sukkot* (Day 15 of Month 7): October 6th
  • Last Day of Feast of Tabernacles/Sukkot (Day 21 of Month 7): October 12th
  • Last Great Day/Shemini Atzeret* (Day 22 of Month 7): October 13th

Finally, historical Jewish events are referenced within scripture (but are not Biblically commanded to be observed). Purim is recognized in the twelfth month (in an observed calendar) that is expected to begin the evening of February 27th in the area of India. Hanukkah is recognized in the ninth month, which is expected to begin the evening of November 19th in the area of Sri Lanka. This places these annual events on the following dates within 2017 for these locations and areas westward:

  • Purim (2017) (Day 14 of Month 12): March 13th
  • First Day of Hanukkah/Chanukah (Day 25 of Month 9): December 14th
  • Last Day of Hanukkah/Chanukah (8th Day): December 21st

++ Dates based on a global trumpet call (Israel-based observation may be delayed one day) More info on Global vs. Israel based observation
# Based on aviv (ripened) barley indigenous to the Promised Land (Israel) region
* High Day of Convocation (no regular work)
(dates posted above begin at sundown the previous evening at the location of the new moon sighting and areas westward as the sun sets)

If you would like to contribute by reporting your own crescent moon sighting, just click here to submit online or email us your report. 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.

Abbas praises Trump’s seriousness about peace

Palestinian Authority (PA) chairman Mahmoud Abbas on Wednesday praised U.S. Donald Trump for his efforts to resume peace talks between Israel and the PA.

Speaking at a meeting with Trump on the sidelines of the UN General Assembly, Abbas said the meeting attested to the president’s seriousness about reaching a Middle East peace deal soon.

“If this is any proof to anything … it attests to the seriousness of your excellency, Mr. President, to achieve the deal of the century in the Middle East during this year or in the coming months, God willing,” the PA chairman said, according to comments quoted by Reuters.

Trump said during the meeting that he is prepared to pour his heart and soul into brokering a permanent peace agreement between Israel and the PA.

“I certainly will devote everything within my heart and within my soul to get that deal made. From the time I was a little boy, I’ve been hearing about peace in the Middle East. We’re going to see what we can do,” Trump told Abbas, reported The Washington Examiner.

Trump indicated he remains optimistic about achieving peace in the Middle East, though he cautioned “there will be no promises” made by his administration.

“So many people have talked about it and it’s never happened,” he said. “But we are fighting very hard. We are trying very hard. We are all getting along together very well. We’ll see if we can do it and if we do do it, it will be a great, great legacy for everybody.”

Abbas said his delegation has met with Trump’s team “more than 20 times” since the president took office, and added he is “very grateful for these efforts.”

Trump’s senior advisor and son-in-law, Jared Kushner, has visited the region several times as part of the administration’s efforts to restart stalled peace talks.

Most recently, Kushner visited in late August and held meetings with both Abbas as well as Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu.

While Netanyahu thanked Trump and the delegation led by Kushner for their efforts to pursue peace and stability in the region, PA officials have expressed pessimism that Washington’s peace efforts can bear fruit.

Earlier this week, while meeting Netanyahu in New York, Trump said, “We’re going to be discussing many things; among them, peace between the Palestinians and Israel — it will be a fantastic achievement. We are giving it an absolute go. I think there’s a good chance that it could happen. Most people would say there’s no chance whatsoever.”
