Chag Sameach Brethren,
We celebrated the Feast of Trumpets here in the Philippines with great fanfare Sunday evening. We even had two people who we interviewed who had seen the new crescent moon. And we also have a report from South Africa having sighted the new crescent moon.
We do not have anyone in Israel who saw the moon.
Yoel reported the following.
I attempted to sighted the moon from my area in northern Israel on August 28th after sunset. Unfortunately, the moon was not visible to the naked eye. However, tomorrow the moon will be at 5% which based on past sightings is usually not the new moon. This issue goes back to the problem I raised several months ago about large moons on the day after the expected sighting day. Hopefully others have sighted the moon from other parts of Israel.
Becca reported the following:
No new moon was seen from Poriyah Ilit tonight.
As of this writing, there have been no reports of anyone successfully seeing the new moon over Israel with their unaided eye. If a later positive report filters in I will send out an update. If no subsequent update is issued, the first day of the seventh lunar month will be Aug 29th, which is Yom Teruah, Feast of Trumpets.
BUt just as I was about to send out this report and after I had changed the fall dates, I got this report from Devorah.
Devorah’s report is as follows.
The New Moon was sighted from Israel this evening, Sunday, 28 August 2022!From Jerusalem (Rechavia) at 7:31pm by Devorah Gordon, followed by Tchiya Jenkins, Katie Jenkins, Dr. Shawn T. Hayden, Dora Hayden, and Crystal Hayden.
This means that sunset on August 28, 2022 marks the beginning of the new month. Be sure to keep track of what number month this is, based on when you started the new year.
The photo at the top of this report was taken from our observation point in Jerusalem this evening.
It is now 3 AM here in the Philippines. We have kept the Feast. I thought we would have to keep it one day later, having no one to sight the moon until Devorah’s report came in. I moved the Fall Holy day dates and have now moved them all back.
This is another testament to the Day and Hour No Man can know. You just never know which day will be the Feast. This was a test. We were about to adjust our dates to follow Yehovah. Now we do not have to.
