What Month is it?

Along with the Gregorian calendar, we also follow the Hebraic calendar, which contains the original timing that was followed in biblical times. Here, you can learn about the current month and gain an understanding of its significance in your everyday life.

The Month of Cheshvan

Summary of Cheshvan

The month of the Messiah: The number “8” signifies eternal revelation and new beginning. The flood began in Cheshvan, and ended the following year on Cheshvan. In Cheshvan, Noah brought his sacrifice to God and God swore never again to bring a flood. God revealed the sign of His covenant with the world—the rainbow.

Cheshvan is the only month which has no holidays. Jews believe this month is “reserved” for the time of Messiah, who will inaugurate the third Temple in Cheshvan.
