Calculating the Jewish Calendar

Hosted By: FreelanceJudaism

The Jewish calendar is a lunisolar calendar, following both the sun (for the seasons) and the moon (for the months). This complex system which dates back nearly 2,000 years is a mathematical puzzle making it very difficult to figure out just when the holidays (or even your birthday) will fall on the secular Gregorian calendar.

Join us as we explore not only how the Jewish calendar is set up, but also how to navigate between the secular and the religious. We’ll dive into the Mathematics that helps programmers build calendars, and gain a deeper understanding of why Hanukah is sometimes in November.

Rabbi Feivel Rubinstein

Rabbi Feivel was ordained from the Ziegler School of Rabbinic Studies in 2019. He now lives in Shreveport, Louisiana with his wife, Rabbi Sydni Rubinstein, who is the Rabbi of Agudath Achim. Rabbi Feivel teaches students both young and old, of various denominations, in private, in groups, and online through his non-profit ‘FreelanceJudaism’. It is his dream to not only connect the Jewish people as a whole, across all sects and backgrounds, but to make its history, culture, traditions, and texts accessible to everyone.
