The Jewish Calendar and Holidays (incl. Sabbath): The Jewish Calendar: Measuring Time:
How do the Jews measure time?
An hour is defined as 1/12 of a day; thus the length of an hour
varies with the seasons and with latitude. To define periods of
time more precisely, an hour is divided into 1080 (3x360) units,
called chalakim ("parts").
