The Jewish Calendar and Holidays (incl. Sabbath): The Jewish Calendar: Two beginnings to the Jewish Year?:
Why was the jewish year change from the way God had it, begining in spring to the way it is now?
In the the book of Exodus 12 speaks about where God spoke about the begining of the year and I am looking at your site now and the year begins somewhat at a different time. Why?
The Jewish new year begins at the beginning of the fall and is celebrated by the festival of Rosh Hashana. According to the Talmud, the day of Rosh Hashana, the first of the Hebrew month called Tishrei, is the day the world came into existence.
However, in a strange paradox, the first month in the Hebrew lunar calendar is Nissan, which occurs in the spring. It is the month in which the Exodus from Egypt occurred. There are many areas of Jewish law which are affected by having these two starts to the year.
