The Jewish calendar, on the other hand, maintains both the lunar and solar relationship and also adjusts for certain religious requirements. The establishment of such a calendar was a remarkable accomplishment for a people living more than 2,000 years ago.
Today it is known that one solar year is approximately 365 days, 5 hours, 48 minutes and 46 seconds. The lunar cycle is approximately 29 days, are cheryl chad dating 12 hours, 44 minutes and 3 1/3 seconds (actually 2.841 seconds by current measurement).
Therefore, twelve lunar months are 354 days, 8 hours, 48 minutes and 40 seconds, which falls short of a solar year by almost eleven days (10 days, 21 hours and 6 seconds).
This difference will play an important role in the calendar calculations.
Of course, a practical calendar must have a whole number of days in each month. Since the lunar month is very nearly 29 1/2 days, a calendar that has twelve months alternating between 29 and 30 days (averaging 29 1/2) would essentially follow the lunar cycle. In fact, this sequence forms the basis for the Jewish calendar. Such a year would have a length of 354 days, short by about eleven days from the solar year. If this were left uncorrected the seasons would quickly drift from their relationship to the months. However, many Jewish festivals are related to agricultural events and must occur during specific seasons.
Once the council had made their declaration the new month was announced by means of fire signals to inform the communities outside of Jerusalem. Distant villages, which could not always receive prompt notice, would celebrate the new moon for two days to be sure they had included the correct day.
Some holidays were also celebrated for two days due to the uncertainty of the new moon.
The council was empowered to compensate for the solar and lunar differences by mandating that a "leap month" be inserted in the calendar every second or third year as the eleven-day difference accumulated. (To correct for the asian and american dating edicate solar error and still maintain the lunar relationship it is necessary to make any correction a month at a time rather than a day at a time as in the Gregorian calendar.) They allowed for some flexibility, considering astronomical facts as well as religious and agricultural requirements. They observed the state of the crops, considered the need to make the Passover journey by way of muddy roads and tried to insert the leap month in an advantageous way.
For the early Jews the day began and ended at sundown rather than at midnight. and there was evening, and there was morning, one day"). The new day (and hence the start of the Sabbath or a holiday) begins at sundown. However, for calendar calculations the day is considered to begin and end at 6 o'clock in the evening, Jerusalem time. The hour of 6 PM is therefore considered hour "zero". The hour was subdivided into 1080 "parts". So a part was 3 1/3 seconds and there were 18 parts in a minute.
Many texts still refer to the use of "parts" but "seconds" are used in JCAL for Windows.
