The New Moon was Sighted March 29, 2017

Joseph F. Dumond

Isa 6:9-12 And He said, Go, and tell this people, You hear indeed, but do not understand; and seeing you see, but do not know. Make the heart of this people fat, and make their ears heavy, and shut their eyes; lest they see with their eyes, and hear with their ears, and understand with their hearts, and turn back, and be healed. Then I said, Lord, how long? And He answered, Until the cities are wasted without inhabitant, and the houses without man, and the land laid waste, a desolation, and until Jehovah has moved men far away, and the desolation in the midst of the land is great.

New Moon Report

Here is the New Moon Report for March 29, 2017


You can now begin to plant and prune what ever you want. Congratulations on completing you very first Sabbatical year. Well done good and faithful servant. Well Done.

Happy New Year, brethren! The New Moon has been sighted from Israel by several witnesses from several locations:

News Letter photo by Becca Biderman: “7:00 p.m. Poriya Ilit, Israel seen by Becca Biderman”

Dennis Chkolnik reported: “Me and my wife have sighted the new moon from Tiberias at 19.00 sharp. Very clear to see! Yehovah Eloheinu is faithful!”

  Above phote by Yoel HaLevi: “The moon as sighted by myself, 3 of my sons and several of my neighbours from Kiryat Ata, Galilee. Other confirmed sightings have been reported from Giva’at Ze’ev.” — Sighted at 7:04pm, pics taken around 7:25pm.

Bruce Brill also reported: “I sighted the new moon this evening (March 29) at 19:08 from Kfar Eldad, Nokdim, Northern Judea, Israel.”

Yehuda Landy: “New moon seen this evening at Kiryat Yearim, 7:15 PM.”

Gilbert Ashendorf: “Hi Everyone, the barley is aviv and we saw the first new moon marking the first month of the year. I saw a few glimmers a little after 7 p.m., but it was 7:20 before I could see it with certainty on March 29, 2017 from the Rechavia neighborhood of Jerusalem. It’s actually fairly common for those of us whose eyes are a little on the older side to see the moon go in and out a few times before you get a good lock. The moon is just below the leaves toward the center of the picture. Shana Tova.”

We also have this report in as well.
The new moon of the 1st month was observed from Israel on March 29, 2017.
