This means that sunset on April 13, 2021 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.
This was a particularly moving new moon sighting, as it coincided with the eve of Yom HaZikaron (Israel’s Memorial Day for fallen soldiers and victims of terrorism). Just as we packed up our gear and started to head back home, we stood for a moment of silence as the siren sounded throughout the country, marking the beginning of Memorial Day. We feel very blessed to be in our homeland and able to sight the new moon from the Holy City of Jerusalem each month. We wish all the families who lost loved ones defending this country much comfort and pray that Yehovah will continue and protect us from our enemies.
The photo at the top of this report was taken from our observation point in Jerusalem.
On behalf of all of us who rely on these observations, we wish to thank everyone in Israel who looked for the new moon this evening and sent in their observations in a timely manner. We are also extremely grateful to those of you who have stepped up and are supporting our efforts from afar, your support helps us be able to collect the observations and share these reports in a timely fashion.
Chodesh Tov! Make it a great month!
